Test Summary

The Time Management test uses everyday situations that people may encounter in a workplace setting to evaluate their responses. The test includes 20 hypothetical scenarios designed to assess a candidate's ability to properly manage time, establish priorities, plan and organise their activity to meet deadlines.

Covered Skills (Behavioural Indicators):

Prioritising - Being able to arrange tasks in order of importance and work through them logically.

  • Identifies critical tasks and arranges them in a logical order.
  • Establishes priorities systematically, differentiating between urgent, important, and unimportant tasks.

Planning - Being able to work out what they need to do to achieve a goal.

  • Accurately estimates time and effort required to complete a task.
  • Identifies and organises systems and required resources to complete work efficiently.

Organising - Being able to arrange what they have to do to make a task easier and more efficient.

  • Developes schedules and timetables with clear, specific milestones and deadlines.
  • Organises personal time effectively and eliminates distractions to carry out responsibilities.

Why measure Time Management?

Effective time management skills can help improve work productivity, quality, and focus. People who display these skills are more likely to complete deliverables on time and achieve goals more quickly.

They are more likely to show self-discipline and simplify their decision-making process.

Prioritisation is a key component of time-management because it enables people to assess each task to determine their importance and work through them logically, one at a time, to accomplish a desired goal. Prioritisation keeps people from procrastinating, gives them clarity and helps them stay organised.

Another component is planning because it helps people identify and plan daily tasks, prepare for meetings, keep to a schedule, and create work plans to meet deadlines. It enables them to imagine, gather and analyse information, and then outline the distinct steps they need to complete a task.

A third component is the ability to organise, which helps with planning and allows people to find the resources they need when they need them. It may enable people to organise appointments, keep a record of information, efficiently file documents, or take clear notes during meetings.
