Why D is the correct answer?

This question is asking you to find the one answer choice which does NOT weaken the argument. Therefore, you need to make sure you read through all of the answer choices for this one. I was tempted by A as well, until I reached D and then had to go back and re-think A.
(A) is incorrect. This answer weakens the argument because it says that time management skills and efficiency are measured in the same way. If they're measured in the same way, then in reality they are just two different words for the same measurement. So, the president's assumption that improving time management will result improved efficiency is faulty as they are really just interchangeable.
(B) is incorrect. This weakens the argument because it is providing a reason why time management training is not required.
(C) is incorrect. This weakens the argument because it indicates that time management training is ineffective.
(D) is correct. This choice does not weaken the argument as all it tells us is that those who are efficient do not need to improve their productivity. This answer choice has nothing to do with the connection between time management training and efficiency and therefore is correct.
(E) is incorrect. This weakens the argument because it provides another reason why time management training may be ineffective.
