Organisational Activities and Effective Time Management among Public Relations Practitioners

Organisational Activities and Effective Time Management among Public Relations Practitioners

Effective time management in the work of a manager is an important prerequisite for achieving strategic goals of the organization. Time is a special and worthy commodity that is given equally to everyone regardless of age, nationality, whether public or private sector. Time is always ever present to everyone, but no one ever seems to have enough of it. In Nigeria, the need for time management in organizations especially the public service 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 study therefore beams a search light on organizational activities and effective time management, as well as, the relationship between managers and subordinates as regards time management. The effective management of time and other inputs or resources in a system is behind growing productivity, while the ineffective management of these inputs accounts for ebbing productivity and, the manager is responsible for this management in the system. Reports show that 3 out of 4 ventures die every year in Nigeria. This is not unconnected with ineffective management of time and other material and human inputs or resources in the venture. Consequently, this paper examined ways of promoting sustainable productivity and employee performance through effective time management.
