Balance launches time management e-learning course

Balance Learning, the interactive learning company, has launched a new e-learning course on time management which it claims can save employees up to an hour a day and reduce their stress.

Called Effective Time Management, the new 90-minute course shows how individuals can plan, prioritise and control their workload, overcome procrastination, handle paperwork, manage emails and information, delegate effectively and make meetings more productive. Available online and on interactive DVD and CD-Rom, it helps individuals to review their values, goals and objectives, analyse their workload, plan their day around when they work best and schedule tasks appropriately.

“For many people, poor time management is the biggest stumbling block to their success,” said Chris Horseman, Managing Director of Balance Learning. “This interactive course enlivens the subject and truly engages interest. It will help you to develop good personal and professional habits, enabling you to gain control of time and maximise your effectiveness both within and outside of the workplace.”

Developed in conjunction with live training provider Partners in Business, the course is an interactive version of a live seminar which has helped employees in public and private sector organisations to gain up to an hour of extra productive time per day. It features a video presentation by time management expert Judi Walsingham, supplemented with interactive exercises, animations, anecdotes and examples of good practice.

Pre and post course assessment surveys are included, which measure attitudes, behaviours and effective use of time before and after the course, enabling organisations to benchmark their improvement rates.

The course also features a printable 30-page reference book, which provides notes, summaries, exercises and examples to help users create their own personal action plan and put the course lessons into practice.

Effective Time Management is the second course in Balance Learning’s new Xpert Factor series of learning resources, which feature interactive presentations and are developed in partnership with subject experts. The first course was Emailogic Interactive-Effective Email, which shows how employees can save an average of 29 minutes per day by managing their email more efficiently. Balance Learning plans to launch additional courses in this series, covering stress management and recruitment & retention.

The online and CD-Rom versions of Effective Time Management are available under an annual licence based on the number of users or size of organisation (as little as £10 per employee). A multi-user licence for the iDVD is priced at £1,200.

Until 31 January 2008, Balance Learning is offering an iDVD – or an online pilot of Effective Time Management, for 20 employees – for £999.
