Autonomy in Knowledge Work

Daily Drucker 8:  Write a work plan that includes your focus, desired results, and deadline.  Submit it to your boss.

What am I going to focus on?
1.)  Expanding my knowledge of Tessitura, and possibly SQL.
2.)  Become well-versed in non-profit financial management strategies, accounting and systems.
3.)  Improve my knowledge of investments as related to endowment management.
4.)  Be comfortable and confident enough to create a viable long-term fiscal model.

What results can be expected for which I should be held accountable?
1.)  Attendance at the Tessitura conference; demonstrate knowledge of Tessitura and/or SQL via projects.
2.)  Offer better opinions and options when reviewing internal financials and budgets of potential projects; identify methods and strategies to make the company more efficient.
3.)  Speak intelligent with members of the endowment committee about the health and future of the symphony's endowment; evaluate plans submitted by services to manage the endowment.
4.)  Use knowledge to create various models for the Symphony (1, 3, 5, 10 years, with variations)

By what deadline?
All TBD
