The Pomodoro Technique

The Pomodoro Technique® Advanced Training Workshop (ATW) in Berlin with Francesco Cirillo // Jun 11th 2019

The world of my perceived possibilities and the utilization of my abilities has been enhanced to the level that I know that when I look back on my life there will be two significant periods of accomplishment, pre-pomodoro and post-pomodoro periods. It's just that powerful!

About the course

This is an official course taught by Francesco Cirillo.

In this workshop we are not going to explain how the Pomodoro Technique works. If you are interested in learning how to apply the Pomodoro Technique please refer to The Pomodoro Technique Time Management Course or the Pomodoro Technique Project Management Course.

In this workshop we will work together with the participants on several different subjects:

  • What’s behind the technique - In this module, we’ll be discussing the reason behind some decisions about the process and the tools involved in the technique, which errors you should avoid, as well as give you some advice.
  • How to choose your productivity tools - In this module we’ll be discussing a series of questions: What makes a tool effective? Why productivity tools can sometimes make us unproductive? What is the most effective way to choose our tools and build up an effective personal productivity system?
  • Scientific evidence about why the technique works - In this module we’ll analyse scientific articles and experiments related to time boxing, multitasking and the importance for our mind of taking breaks.
  • Philosophical issues related to time - In this module we will go through some inspiring philosophical ideas/ views about time and how our mind perceives the passing of time.
  • Successful case studies and experiences of individuals and teams who have successfully applied the technique - What makes you win your challenge with time? In this module we’ll go through a number of successful experiences in different fields and contexts.
  • How to teach the technique to individuals and teams - In this module we’ll consider which factors make an individual or a team change and improve their process faster and in a more steady and sustainable way. We’ll be discussing a series of demanding questions: How team members can help each other and favour the application of the Pomodoro Technique in a team? How to start applying the Pomodoro Technique in a team?
  • The work process behind the Pomodoro Technique and how to adapt it to complex contexts. In this module we’ll analyse the Core Process and the The Individual Daily Based Process explained in the Pomodoro Technique. Then we’ll consider how to adapt these processes to a team with common issues with time: interruptions, bottlenecks, deadlines, complex goals to be reached, communication overload, change and uncertainty. Once we have analysed these processes we’ll take into consideration how to adapt the Pomodoro Technique process to unpredictable and more demanding needs.

Q&A Productivity Clinic

The Pomodoro Technique has been organically adopted by thousands of people across the world because it is so simple to use. Many participants of the course often have specific questions, usually variations of "How can I apply the technique when…?" To cater for this, one Pomodoro of this session will be given over to a structured Q&A session working through your questions and queries.

Speaking as a life-long knowledge junkie who has gone through dozens, if not a hundred self improvement training programs and books, the Pomodoro Technique Time Management Course is hands down one of the best training programs I have ever done, which have had the highest impact on my life. This course has helped me understand how to overcome productivity problems I have struggled with for years, it is the breakthrough I was looking for. I used to be intimidated by large projects and goals where I didn't know exactly what to do and how to do it, but now I am confident I can organize any complex goal, understand it like an X-ray, and create an effective plan of execution, where every pomodoro counts and there is no time waste or confusion. It is one of the very few courses, where I left MORE EXCITED than when I joined! I am very happy, satisfied and most of all HIGHLY IMPRESSED with Francesco's work, and I HIGHLY recommend his materials to anyone who is serious about improving their productivity.

If you struggle with time, and with being organized around time, this is the course for you! It will require an investment of time, of leaving yourself open to new ideas, or trying on new habits, but the reward will change your life!

I give this course my highest recommendation. As an attorney with over a 100 active clients, my time is at a premium. The Pomodoro Technique, and this course in particular, have given me the foundation to better serve my clients while at the same time maintaining my sanity. I am better equipped to tackle complex projects, manage my team, and plan strategically. Who knew that a tomato timer would be the most valuable thing in my office? I would take this course again and eagerly await new offerings from the Pomodoro team. A job well done.

I'm a big fan of the Pomodoro Technique. It's not too often you get to work directly with the creator of a tool that has changed your life. Now that I've worked with Francesco directly, I'm an even bigger fan. I'm enthusiastic because this technique is simple and life-changing. The course helped me go into deeper related concepts built on the basic technique. Anyone who wants to streamline their day and their thinking would benefit from this tasty course. Anyone who struggles with feeling like they don't have enough time to get done what they want, whether on a daily basis or in terms of life goals, would do well to master this technique. I'm excited to see my business and life evolve with my new knowledge gained from this course.

The Pomodoro course helped me to take more realistic approach to my personal time management and gave me self-confidence to reach towards my goals. The course introduces some very useful concepts and approaches for managing complex goals and planning both one's own work effort and work in teams. I can recommend the course for everyone who wants to work more effectively and to make realistic plans for reaching complex or simple goals either personally or in teams.
