57311RE: How much research do you do in your "off time"?
- Oct 18, 2013
Yep, that's similar. Thanks Yves, I'm just looking for what others that are successful have done. I find that a lot of team members don't give themselves "permission" to research. Very few that I have encountered were actually hindered by the org. Though that has been the case at times as well.

First, I love what I do. I research my actual job all of the time.
For a long time though I didn't have this job. I had another actual job and wanted my current one. That meant that I researched a lot so I could get the job that I wanted.
However, my existing job benefited a lot from my research. That's because I was always sure to tie the research back to a business need that they had. Quality, predictability, ROI. Sound familiar? So I would tend to research about 1-2 hours at work on average. I would also tend to be just as more effective than someone who didn't research at all. I have used that threshold for years give or take.
How about others?
