I have been introduced to a new concept called The Pomodoro Technique. It’s a way to work in a very focused and lean way, on the individual level (it can also be used for groups).
From what I’ve learned so far it seems very powerful and is something that I sure will be reading more about, and try to use for myself. I often have trouble to keep my focus on the task at hand and the Pomodoro Technique seems like a great way of handling that.
Here are some resources that I found on the subject:
- Pomodoro Technique in 5 minutes
- Book from the inventor of Pomodoro, Francesco Cirillo
- Pomodoro Technique Illustrated
And finally a great lightning talk by Staffan Nöteberg on the problems that Pomodoro sets out to solve. In Swedish I am afraid…
Here is a longer (50 min) version of the same talk in english.
