The tell-tale signs of poor time management are often apparent in the workplace; people feeling overloaded with work, working late or missing deadlines – often lurching from one crisis to another.

The outcomes of poor time management are potentially harmful for both the individual and the organisation, since productivity suffers, stress takes a hold and morale crashes.

When time is managed well, however, people are exceptionally productive at work, stress levels drop and they can devote time to the interesting, high-reward projects that can make a real difference to a career. The organisation also benefits from higher productivity and well-motivated employees

This course, one of a series, enables the learner to understand the concept of time management, identify any issues they may have and take initial steps to remedy problems.

This product allows the student to print a certificate from the course on sucessful completion.
