Where time is concerned, project management has been described as a nine-to-five job. This is so because project management comprises of the nine knowledge areas that are underpinned by the five processes. Planning is however the key driver behind good time management. It has often been said that if a person fails to plan, that person plans to fail. Time management is about understanding the type, nature, magnitude and intensities of the activities involved in a project and scheduling these activities to meet the various deadlines. To do this, the project manager therefore needs to possess good understanding of the activities in the industry concerned. The activities in the banking industry are clearly different from the activities in the manufacturing industry.
