The Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique for Small Businesses, Companies and Corporations NEW-COMPANIES

Improve the quality and speed of your work. Get better organised and stop bleeding money on inefficient processes. You’ll see measurable results in the first week.

Slash costs, boost profits


The Pomodoro Technique offers teams a simple way to observe their behavior towards time. How does the team respond to urgent tasks, delays and interruptions? Which criteria define a team’s time schedule? How does the team improve their ability to estimate how long a task will take? Or reduce the effort spent on repetitive tasks?

Here’s a little story...

You need to deliver a sales report by the end of the day to your manager.
Marc is in charge of analyzing data - a really time consuming activity - and Angela is in charge of getting feedback from our best customers. You and your team planned everything: the goal is feasible.
But something is not working as expected.
Marc is not at his desk. Someone called him and he was not able to manage the interruption.
Angela is having difficulties contacting some clients but she doesn't let you know. Instead she works harder.
Maybe this report was really important for you and you trusted your team.
How do you think you will react at 5 pm when Marc and Angela explain why they are unable to deliver what they had agreed on together with you?
Will you trust them in the future?
What makes this situation worse is that both Marc and Angela acted in good faith.
They just didn't have an effective time management strategy in place.

The days go by...


Situations like these create frustration. Anxiety contaminates the team’s mood. Feelings of bitterness prevail. Trust between team members starts to break down. They start blaming one another. Conflicts arise. We end up in a circle around our goal, frustrated and distrusting others, until we burn out, enveloped in an atmosphere of tension, anxiety, and frustration.

Do you think it’s just a fairy tale?


Well, it’s not!


When we work in a team, goals tend to be more complicated to reach. The more complicated the goals, the more unexpected and urgent tasks there will be and in turn the delays and interruptions will become more destructive.

As the complexity of the goal increases, so does the need to coordinate with more people. And the more people who are involved in the process - team members and external consultants and providers -, the more interruptions and delays there will be.


How can the Pomodoro Technique help a team reach their goals?


The Pomodoro Technique offers team members a way to develop a shared set of practices that protects the team from the frequent and aggressive pressures of time and that transforms these pressures into an opportunity to improve.

In particular, by applying the Pomodoro Technique in a company your team can manage to:

Reduce the length and number of meetings


No more long, exhausting and useless meetings.


Handle interruptions


No more mistakes due to lack of concentration.

No more wrong estimates, rework, stress and overtime.


Improve motivation by improving the content of work

learn to understand the effort a task will take, reduce the complexity of tasks that need doing, organize your time


No more lack of confidence, lack of responsibility and lack of trust between team members.


Transform time from being an enemy to being an ally in order to achieve your goals

take regular breaks, learn to observe yourself and your team and improve your work process


No more work under pressure.

No more tensions between team members.

No more fear of being accountable.


Share with your team members the same point of view about what to do


No more doubts about what to do, who has to do what and when something will be done.


Optimise the interaction between team members needed to complete tasks

no communication overflow


No more thousands of instant messages, emails and calls interrupting your work flow.


Reduce estimation errors

learn to simplify and organize tasks


No more wrong estimates on complex, undefined and uncertain tasks.

No more complex, unmanageable and unreachable goals.


Reduce the complexity of your goals and the relative uncertainty of reaching them

by learning to transform deeply nested hierarchies of tasks into linear task lists: task lists without dangerous bottlenecks and interdependencies between tasks


No more complex, unmanageable and unreachable goals.


Meet deadlines without time pressure

learn to transform a complex goal into a series of simpler goals to be reached and hence increase your motivation, the precision of the estimates and the probability of final success


No more missed deadlines and costly delays.


Create an effective team timetable to reach multiple goals, handle unplanned events, tasks, emergencies and change


No more bottlenecks, stress, rework and overtime.

No more frictions between team members.
