Time management systems often include a time clock or web based application used to track an employee’s work hours. Time management systems give employers insights into their workforce, allowing them to see, plan and manage employees’ time. Doing so allows employers to control labor costs and increase productivity. A time management system automates processes, which eliminates paper work and tedious tasks.

Time management also covers how to eliminate tasks that do not provide the individual or organization value.
According to Sandberg task lists “aren’t the key to productivity they’re cracked up to be”. He reports an estimated “30% of listers spend more time managing their lists than completing what’s on them”.
Hendrickson asserts that rigid adherence to task lists can create a “tyranny of the to-do list” that forces one to “waste time on unimportant activities”.
