Bob Pozen: Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours

Robert C. Pozen is currently a Senior Lecturer at MIT Sloan School of Management and a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution. In 2012, he won acclaim for a popular book showing professionals how to get more done at work, entitled Extreme Productivity: Boost Your Results, Reduce Your Hours. In 2004, Bob became the executive chairman of MFS Investment Management, which now manages over $400 billion for mutual funds and pension plans.  Between 2004 and 2010, MFS’s assets under management doubled. During his distinguished career, Bob has been active in business, government and academia. Prior to joining MFS, he was vice chairman of Fidelity Investments and president of Fidelity Management & Research Company. During Bob’s five years as president, Fidelity’s assets increased from $500 billion to $900 billion. In late 2001 and 2002, Bob served on President Bush’s Commission to Strengthen Social Security, where he developed a progressive plan to make the system solvent.  In 2003, Bob served as Secretary of Economic Affairs for Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. In 2007, he served as chairman of the SEC's Committee to Improve Financial Reporting.

Bob Pozen gets a lot done. He’s taught a full course load at Harvard Business School while serving as the full-time chairman of a global financial services firm. He’s written six books and hundreds of articles, served on many boards of local charities and public companies, and raised a family with his wife of more than four decades. For over forty years, Pozen has worked smarter and faster than almost anyone around him.

In Extreme Productivity, Pozen reveals his secrets to workplace productivity and high performance. The antidote to a calendar full of boring meetings and a backlog of emails, his book shows professionals how they can achieve their goals by making a critical shift in mindset: from hours worked to results produced.

Bob is currently an independent director of Medtronic, Nielsen and AMC (a subsidiary of the World Bank).  He also serves as Chairman of the board of the Tax Policy Center, and on the advisory board of Perella Weinberg Partners. Bob frequently writes articles for the Financial Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Harvard Business Review. He has published a book on the recent financial crisis, Too Big To Save? How to Fix the US Financial System, and a guide for investors entitled The Fund Industry: How Your Money is Managed. Bob graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College and holds a law degree from Yale, where he also obtained a doctorate for a book on state enterprises in Africa. He lives in Boston with his wife of 37 years.
