About the course
Before the start of the course, you will be asked to complete a survey in which you will describe your experience, your time management challenges and your expectations of the course. On the basis of the survey, you will define with Francesco an actual objective to be achieved by the end of the course.

Session 1 - The Pomodoro Technique Core Process
- Why the Pomodoro Technique?

Session 2 - The Pomodoro Technique Daily Individual Process

Session 3 - Mastering the Pomodoro Technique

Individual assignments are very important in this course. They are assigned at the end of each session. The following session starts with feedback on the individual assignments. Comparison with other course participants enables you to see solutions different from your own, to see contexts and problems different from your own and to receive useful feedback for achieving your own objective for the course.
In the final session, Francesco will hold a Productivity Clinic for checking with you whether you have achieved your objective for the course and showing you how to correctly apply what you have learned in your next project or next challenge.
