What is Time Boxing?
Time Boxing is a time management technique that involves allocating a fixed time period, called a “time box”, to each planned activity. Rather than working on a task until it’s completed, the focus is on working for a specific amount of time, after which the task is reviewed. Time boxing is popular in various fields such as software development, where it’s often used in agile methodologies like Scrum. The technique promotes efficiency and productivity by encouraging focus, reducing procrastination, and providing regular intervals for rest and review.
