The WorkingSm@rt Journey

The WorkingSmart Method Text Logo

The WorkingSm@rt method was created to meet the changing demands of a complex, modern business world, evolving with the challenges in business to provide the solutions that organizations need to be successful.


WorkingSm@rt will give you back the most valuable of all resources: Time.

Time to spend on your next innovation, your staff, your customers, or simply time with your family and friends. When you feel in control of your day and it’s YOU making the decisions, you can focus on the activities you get most from and that bring you the most reward.


One of the many benefits of the WorkingSm@rt method is its ability to integrate with industry-standard business software and hardware configurations.

Many organizations, large and small, have a complex mix of systems, process and procedures that requires training be customized to match their specific needs.

WorkingSm@rt has this flexibility built in.

The key to success lies in the ability for teams to work together without the constraint of being together. Whether the challenge is virtual, where geography is the issue or the reality of team schedules not lining up.

Effective teamwork, collaboration, and communication

At some point, every team feels a disconnect in collaboration and communication, but if it’s a lot of the time, then you and your team need a road map to improve the process and get better results.

Putting the Plan into Action

Application & Implementation Logo

This half-day session includes a facilitated discussion on the skills learned during the training, and team decision-making on how those skills will be applied to create a shared common process.


Those decisions will be recorded, and Priority Management will create a protocol document (A Playbook) that will be provided to the team as a reference guide to ensure sustainable behavioural change, maximizing productivity and efficiency, and as a handy onboarding tool for new team members. If this session is completed prior to the participants’ coaching sessions, we can coach to your custom Playbook to ensure consistency across the team.


  • Define the major objectives coming out of the WorkingSm@rt program

  • Mind map all the functionality the team needs to meet the daily and project objectives.

  • Review initial draft and adjust to create a finalized document.

  • Establish order and timeframe with the client to put in place the standards, expectations, and protocols.
