PDI has designed the Harvard® International Planner to respond to the increased time demands and scarcer resources facing today's professionals, executives and support staff. As U.S., Canadian and Japanese patents prove, the Planner is a true innovation which raises the standard to which even the most expensive time management instruments are compared.

The Harvard® International Planner offers you all the writing space you need
and lets you keep an eye on the whole week.

Consider the following unique elements of the Harvard® design when comparing planners:

  1. The vast majority of personal organizers and time management instruments on the market today include one page per day. However, PDI research and focus groups have concluded that a vast majority of users are more successful in scheduling and prioritizing when they plan a week - not a day - at a time. As a result, the International Planner offers you each week on two pages for easy visualization.
  2. However, two pages per week does not necessarily mean restricted writing space. With the Harvard® system's precoded tasks and actions, it's easy to schedule by writing details in a separate action section and cross referencing to the appointment section. You never spill over to other hour lines thus leaving your appointment section free and legible, and you still have as many lines as you need for details in the action section. Thus, the Harvard® Planner is a true space saver. Moreover, if you choose a refill version with a leather portfolio, you can add as many optional note or action forms per week as you need, but only when you need them. The result is the thinnest, lightest and most compact annual planner available.
  3. And as for time-saving features, the Harvard® Planner's patented design is perfect for today's professionals who on average tend to defer at least 20% of their activities from day to day. Pre-coded actions allow you to defer any task or activity without rewriting related details. Plus, an ingenious action-forward system allows you to reschedule, track progress, delegate and follow-up with a minimum of writing and rewriting. All this in a system that's easy to learn, easy to use and easy to adapt to your needs.
  4. To verify that the Harvard® Planner brings users concrete results, PDI commissioned an independent market study by Ernst & Young. The study showed that those who switch to the Harvard® Planner saved an equivalent of 10 days per year, which translates to over $2000 in productivity gains. This is indeed an unbeatable return on investment!
