The Getting Things Done site, www.davidallenonline.com, by management consultant David Allen, contains a lot of free advice alongside promotional material for his seminars and products. Allan Pettie, principal teacher of IT and computing at Dalkeith high school, Midlothian, relies on it for "down-to-earth help on managing workload".
"David Allen has a philosophy of downloading all the 'stuff' we usually carry around in our heads: bight ideas, next steps, calls to make. He suggests we lay them out in action-oriented lists - and then stop worrying about them. It is much more to the point than lots of courses and books. He doesn't try to sell you a pound;100 leather personal organiser and his ideas can be implemented at whatever level you want."
