  • Time Management Lauren Caskie
  • Why is Time Management Important?
    • To work effectively you really have to manage your time.
    • In a business time is money and every hour you spend at work costs your employer a lot of money.
    • It is not just the salary that the employer needs to pay out, there is also heating lighting telephone costs training etc for the employees to be at work at that time.
    • For the individual, good time management skills usually mean that the employee feels more in control of their workload.
  • Poor time management is usually shown by:
    • Getting less done than you expected.
    • An inability to meet deadlines set by your line manager.
    • Not knowing what to do or how to start.
    • Meetings going on longer than expected.
    • Taking on too much work in the first place because you feel you have to say yes and help others.
    • Putting off starting this is known as procrastination.
  • Effects of Poor Management Skills
    • Much of the time is spent at work being wasted - some of it on displacement activities, e.g. spending time doing jobs that do not matter or could be done be someone at a lower lever.
    • Staff becoming demoralised as work becomes very routine and seems to serve no purpose.
    • Work not progressing as fast as management hoped.
    • Targets not being achieved and the strategic and operational plans becoming meaningless.
    • New projects not being started as there is never any ‘spar’ time to progress new ideas.
    • From the employers prospective poor time management skills result in:
  • There are lots of benefits to both individual and the organisation of adopting good time management skills:
    • It allows organisations to plan, delegate and organise employees more effectively.
    • Everyone in the organisation can then be focused on their own tasks.
    • Progress of projects can be traced and if there is a hold up it can be identified and extra resources allocated to it.
    • Individual employees feel more in control of their work, i.e. they know what has to be done and they know when it has been finished.
  • Personal Targets
    • Recruit, develop and motivate people to help achieve organisation's targets.
    • Develop a structure which encourages co-operation and commitment to the organisation.
