Workshop 3
Time management in scientific research: Aligning time and goals

Teaching, research, grant acquisition, professional development, private arrangements and not least the scientific output: Time pressure results in many things only being half done. In the end there is not enough time for the important tasks and you are left with the uncomfortable feeling of again not having managed everything.

It is however not difficult to improve dealing with the personal time budget. Through the implementation of established time management methods, individual disturbances can be minimised, priorities can be set and planning horizons can be determined in order to make the own work more effective.

During this workshop the participants learn the fundamentals of time management and deal mainly with the following topics:
  • Basics of time management: Setting goals and priorities
  • Efficiency versus effectiveness: The subtle difference
  • Important or urgent: My projects in the Eisenhower diagram
  • Structuring your time: My planning horizon
  • Would’ave, could’ave, should’ave: Disturbances & time-wasters – both self-inflicted & caused by others
  • Expect the unexpected: Strategies for dealing with the unplannable
  • Time management: My next steps
