Finish on Time

The background of this workshop is that we often focus on what/the content of our work, but sometimes we forget to pay attention to our own work process, or how we work, think and act. However, the process is central in order to complete our work on time and feel well during the process. More specifically, you will learn three academic productivity tools – the 80/20 principle; end product focus, and the unit method – and apply them to your own work situation. You will

  • Try new productivity tools that are easy to implement and have large impact
  • Get an increased sense of control through practical productivity tools
  • Share experiences and best practices with other participants

Workshop instructor: 

Miriam Thegel (PhD) works as a postdoctoral researcher at Uppsala University. She attended workshops for doctoral students given by Finish on Time 2015–16. Since that, Miriam has worked with the techniques and shared her reflections and experiences in The Doctoral Student Handbook.
