Time Management Training Course

This training course will help you develop a strategy for ‘event control’ and give you a range of tools and techniques to help you plan and organise yourself to be effective.

The programme comprises of two virtual sessions (interactive, facilitator lead) combined with pre and post exercises/activities structured and designed to make this as real life and relevant as possible to each individual in order to bring about real, sustainable change.

 

Objectives

By the end of these sessions you will be able to:

  • Understand and work with your own behavioural preferences of how you manage your time

  • Establish and manage priorities, both professional and personal

  • Plan your time more effectively

  • Manage interruptions and beat procrastination

  • Set achievable goals

  • Work more effectively with others; when and how to delegate

 

I found this course very refreshing. When I set out to pursue this, I was expecting some diary management processes and tools which I thought would be good for the test team. In fact what we got was way better.

The training course revolves around understanding behaviours. This includes your own behaviour and interaction with other people’s behaviours that can cause time management to be impacted by various types of distraction.

There was also a good section on understanding what the difference is between important and urgent and how to manage it.

The trainer created a good environment where everyone was able to contribute and learn.

I think anyone that regularly finds themselves under pressure with priority tasks or tight deadlines could benefit from this course.
