Activity Breakdown - Activity Category

Assess how time is spent across different category by team and individuals. Use trends to see variations over time and category allocation to quickly assess where time is dedicated.

Key Questions:


Is each employee engaging in productive activity on a daily basis? Compared to goals?

With a focus on support opportunities and improvement, consider answering this question through the lens of “Where can I quickly provide help?” Assess which employees consistently struggled to engage in productive work over a set period of time. Perhaps they are unclear on goals (role alignment), struggling with how to complete a task (training), and or dispassionate about the work (engagement). 

Where is time being spent?

Immediately assess where unproductive distractions exist by looking at where time is allocated across your team. Share this data as the basis for setting team-wide or individual goals to increase or decrease these numbers over time.



A. Category Allocation % by Team: Category allocation % by team helps us better understand where the team is spending its time. This is useful for managers looking to understand potential obstacles or simply looking for clues into activity and strategy alignment.

Productivity Lab Tip

Small adjustments can drastically improve the team’s capacity.  Ex., understanding the % of time in meeting software vs. developer tools can help drive changes to remove unnecessary distractions and boost the team’s overall productivity

B. Category Allocation % by User: It is important to understand how individuals spend time in various applications depending on their roles. Dive into the individual level and assess if the current time allocation is reasonable based on the demands of the work. Gauge whether small adjustments/coaching may be needed.
