POSEC stands for Prioritize, Organize, Streamline, Contribution, Economize, Contribution.
It is built as a pyramid of employee goals in order of importance, and should be implemented from the bottom upward.

The following steps constitute the POSEC method:

POSEC method Prioritize - Set task importance according to corporate goals. Set task priorities in the order of their importance. Prioritize employee's allocation of time based on task priorities.

Organize - Coordinate the activities of the employee efficiently. Structure the employee's set of goals and tasks into a task list.

Streamline - Automate the work tasks that consume a lot of time and human effort.

Economize - Find ways to keep within means on tasks that employees must do or would like to do, but are not needed to be done with any degree of urgency.
Training, acquiring new skills, engaging in personal development are important tasks, but frequently at the bottom of the list of priorities.

Contribution - Pay attention to those tasks whose measure of benefit may not be evident immediately, but will make a difference over a longer period of time. The POSEC method was created to help build personal efficiency and improve the total effectiveness of the team.
The POSEC method is loosely based around Maslow's theories in his 1943 paper "A Theory of Human Motivation", regarding the "Heirarchy of Needs".
Maslow use the terms Physiological, Safety, Belongingness and Love, Esteem, and Self-Actualization needs to describe the pattern that human motivations generally move through

The POSEC method provides guidelines for helping management set employee goals in order of importance.
Correct execution would cause upward movement on Maslow's "Needs Hierarchy."
