ABSTRACT
In developing countries like Nigeria, the need for time management in organizations cannot be over emphasized. Time management helps in achieving individual and organizational goals in view of the limited amount of time available to man. The paper examines and analyses how time abundant yet scarce resources can be managed for effective and efficient employee performance. In analyzing the issues raised in the paper, we applied time management theories and approaches which enable us direct our search light on the techniques and processes of time management, as well as, the relationship between managers and subordinates as regards time management. The study revealed that organizational managers and subordinates are faced with time management problems which have created difficulties for the attainment of organizational goals. However, certain steps have to be taken to inculcate and promote the virtue of time management that can lead to employee effectiveness and efficiency in the work place. Among others, subordinates in an organization should be encouraged to ask questions and seek agreements on priorities, be prepared to compromise, if necessary in order to make the best use of time, be on guard against unscheduled visitors and telephone calls. Also meetings should be held during specific hours of the day. During other times, people should be available for regular duties at their work-places. These recommendations should be sustained overtime and should be seen as a way of life in organizations. It concludes that time an important element in organizational life, if properly managed would ensure organizational productivity and development.
