Time is a unique commodity that is given equally to everyone regardless of age. Time always moves at a predetermined and constant rate, but no one ever seems to have enough time.

Efficiency in general describes the extent to which time or effort is well used for the intended task or purpose. It is assumed that proper time management will lead to greater efficiency. But does it really? We wish to look at the various aspects of the relation between time management and efficiency by taking Managers as our sample of study.
