Time Management and Effectiveness

Public cible:
Researchers, no prior knowledge or skills in Time Management are required.
An understanding of project structuring and scheduling from a Project Management course would be an advantage, but is not essential.

Time Management is a valuable skill for every researcher. If you want to work more productively, if you do not find enough time to work on your research project because there are so many other things you have to do, this workshop is right for you. It is complementary to the "Project Management for Research" workshop, which trains you to structure and schedule your research project.

Time Management has become a critical operational style required for successful and high-performing professionals. Having an overwhelming number of things to do and still work priority-steered and productively with a clear head and a positive sense of relaxed control is possible. The gained time can be used to work on priorities, but also to increase your available recreational time and so help to create a good work-life balance.

General Learning Objective

After this workshop, participants will have proven and successful time management methods, tools and techniques with which to optimize their effectiveness and efficiency, and the experience of having applied a choice of them during the workshop and transfer time.
