Description & Coverage
Description:

The association of personal time management research with calendar applications has remained a relatively under-researched area due to the complexity and challenges it faces.

Temporal Structures in Individual Time Management: Practices to Enhance Calendar Tool Design covers the latest concepts, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives essential to understanding individual time management experiences. Emphasizing personal temporal structure usage involving calendar tools, this book provides both qualitative and quantitative evidences and insights valuable for researchers and practitioners in enhancing current electronic calendar systems design and implementation.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Bivariate correlation analysis
  • Calendar design research
  • Calendar tool design
  • Current practices in time management
  • Data analysis and index validation
  • Future electronic calendar
  • Individual time management
  • Prototypes for calendar design
  • Temporal structure model
  • Time manager calendar selection
Reviews and Testimonials

The focus is on understanding the relationship between the quality of individual time management and an individual's understanding and use of temporal structures.
