Chapter One


1.1 Background Of The Study

The management of time is an issue which is fundamental to job performance. In the past, attention to the relationship between time and job performance was restricted to manual workers and then, by means of organization and methods to clerical workers.

The consideration of time utilization for managerial and professional grades has not received much attention until recently current approaches are based on the assumption that personal effectiveness at work is primarily a function of the individual management of his or her time.

For productivity to be high, the judicious time usage is very important, without the proper usage of time, there will be lower productivity within an organization. As a manager in an organization one must be very conscious on the use of time, for poor utilization of time will affect the entire organization’s output. If a manager makes use of his time effectively and efficiently, the organization, will be in a path to growth and development. The subordinates will also be motivated to put in their best for the organization, been that the manager has perfectly demonstrated to them the importance of time utilization. If there is no time target on a particular task, productivity will be low, which is going to adversely affect the organization negatively.
