Time Management

Duration : 2 hours 30 minutes Course Level : Introductory Delivery Method : Online
Course Cost : £41.99

Many hours are unnecessarily ‘lost’ each week in the workplace. Time Management helps employees to analyse how they spend their time at work, and shows them how to free up time through delegation or rescheduling. It provides guidance on how to prioritise work effectively.

Team leaders and managers should be able to organise their own, and their team’s, time. Good time management skills allow employees to achieve more during the working day and contribute to the success of the business.

Who is the course for?

Time Management is suitable for any individual who is responsible for their own working time, and is appropriate to any business sector. It is also appropriate for first-time managers who lead a team but who have had no formal training in this area.

There are no formal entry requirements and the easy to follow, step-by-step format of this course means participants can work at their own pace, making it ideal for anyone new to the subject.

  • understand the three-step process to effective time management
  • analyse your daily activities using this process
  • develop a personal approach to using your time in the most productive way

  • implement techniques for minimising disruptions.

Course features

Time Management is a course that provides practical guidance on how to use your time at work more effectively.

The course uses a simple case study, and basic exercises such as multiple choice and true or false questions. After each exercise you'll be given feedback on how you've done.

An audio soundtrack delivers most of the content, with simple graphics and on-screen text summarising the key points.

You can print a transcript of each screen’s audio component for future reference. The course also includes a glossary of business terms, an alphabetical list of business “thought leaders”, and a resources section featuring links to useful online business resources.

Time Management is available for six months from the date first accessed.
