Abstract

As a young adult finalizing his Bachelor’s Degree, it is important to overcome the limitations of poor time-management skills in order to prioritize one’s best performance. In this case study, I analyze the results of strategically reassessing one’s personal time-management skills through the usage of accessible task management tools alongside the development of a time-budgeting discipline. This study describes the development of this process from a rough initial adoption of software-based time-management tools to the creation of an app prototype whose purpose is to encourage time-management. This prototype is structured with proper user experience (UX) in mind while maintaining compliance with guidelines to fulfill its core feature integrity. The ongoing development of this prototype is sectioned into a sequence of design that is representative of key components of understanding time-management, and its potential if harnessed correctly within an everyday workflow. t to overcome the limitations of poor time-management skills in order to prioritize one’s best performance. In this case study, I analyze the results of strategically reassessing one’s personal time-management skills through the usage of accessible task management tools alongside the development of a time-budgeting discipline. The final results of this prototype development are represented in various graphical mockups that showcase the user experience of the application, how the prototype is compliant with self-imposed design rules, and the impacts that developing this prototype has had on personal time-management skills.
