This research examines the time management strategies of individuals and gathers information on the complex temporal structures they experience and manage. Its focus is on understanding the relationship between the quality of individual time management and an individual’s understanding and use of temporal structures involving electronic calendar systems. This work consists of a survey study which examines the hypotheses developed from a review of literature on the impact and role of time in people’s work lives. A theoretical research model is proposed and tested using partial least squares (PLS) technique to examine the relationships between the key survey constructs. This study demonstrates that the use and understanding of temporal structures is an important component for good individual time management. Significant relationships between the quality of individual time management and various temporal structures were discovered and also indicate that temporal structures could be a new design component for the electronic calendar systems.
