The paper “ Time Management Skills, Setting Goals and Objectives” is a cogent example of the literature review on management. The first five journals are an introduction to time management, giving basic information on the rudiments of the skill. It gives the reader the relevant background that they need to get started on practicing time management. Journal of the European Medical Writers Association (1)This article puts together a collection of websites that assist one to learn time management techniques. The aim is to gather together various resource sources that can be used by the researcher as they attempt to research time management skills.

Four websites were featured which deal with synchronizing work and personal life through ten methods of time management. The next website is a video by Professor Randy Pausch on time management. The third site deals with creating personal boundaries between work time and personal time and finally a comic piece spoofing the need for time management and the benefits of stress. The heading of this article, therefore, turns out to be misleading because the article does not talk about any art of time management and has nothing new to offer in the discourse on time management skills.

Instead, it tends to spout cliché s and state the obvious. As an academic piece, it is barely useful except perhaps for the links it provides. World Applied Sciences Journal (2)This study aims at determining how the share of effective factors affects time management among managers. It was done by surveying a statistical sample of 112 managers using survey questionnaires detailing time management. The hypotheses were that time management varies with service experience; or different experience of management; differing education; and finally that there is a correlation between effective factors in time management such as control of troublemakers, sufficient expertise, communication and meetings, planning and personal interest, that influence the degree of time management in the group.

The results support the first hypothesis with an indication that time management varies with the different managers depending on the amount of experience each has, their background, and education.
