AbstractTime management develops strategies to maximize time to achieve personal and organizational goals. Organizational strategies benefit the individual leader as well the organization like planning, goal setting, delegation, decision authority, and work life balance. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview for those interested in the current state‐of‐the‐art in time management research. The review demonstrates that time management behaviors relate positively to perceived control of time, job satisfaction and health, and negatively to stress. This review makes clear which effects may be expected of time management, which aspects may be most useful for which individuals, and which work characteristics would enhance or hinder positive effects. Its outcomes may help to develop more effective time management practices. The article examines the reasons for the increasing popularity of time management. It then reviews some of the major concepts contained in the literature: efficiency, effectiveness and life goals; how to find the time; keeping a time log; time planning systems; getting organized; and how to become an effective time manager.
