Abstract
"Time is the scarcest resource, and unless it is managed, nothing else can be managed" [1]. This observation by Drucker is underscored by another manager, McCarthy, who has aptly noted that managing time is the most important management task [2]. He further observes that effective time management reflects effective self-management. If problems exist, their primary source should therefore be evident. In my experience, problems with time management, with communication, or with both have caused more health and safety program difficulties and failures than any other factors, including limitations regarding finances, number of people, facilities, or expertise. A manager who can use available time wisely can expect to achieve more effective and efficient results and also have more personal and professional satisfaction. This chapter considers some techniques to help use time wisely, and the next chapter reviews methods that can improve communication.
