Test Your GTD-Q®

The David Allen Company is a global training and consulting company, widely considered the leading authority in the fields of organizational and personal productivity. David Allen's Getting Things Done® approach enables greater performance, capacity, and innovation. It alleviates the feeling of overwhelm, instilling focus, clarity, and confidence. Learn more about GTD®.

We created the GTD-Q® in conjunction with one of the world's leading professional assessment firms. In less than two minutes, you will get visual results of where you fit in terms of the two critical elements of self management: control and perspective.

The GTD-Q is not meant to describe how you operate at all times. In fact, your levels of control and perspective can change as quickly as what you do during the day changes. Come back to take the assessment as often as you'd like. Take advantage of this helpful tool along with many of our other free resources, including our free GTD-Q app for the iPhone to support you in your journey with Getting Things Done.
