Abstract

The purpose of this mixed methods study was to explore leaders’ perceptions of time use and the use of effective time management strategies. The study included five research questions and responses from 20 nonprofit administrators working within 33 technical college foundations across the state of Georgia. Respondents participated in follow-up interviews after completing the online Time Management Practices Inventory (TMPI) survey. The findings of the study revealed statistically significant relationships between TMPI scores and selected demographics. Findings revealed that leaders’ perception of time use, demographic characteristics, attitudes, and time management strategies were factors in implementing effective time management techniques to improve organizational success and effectiveness. Triangulation analysis substantiated the study’s findings. Results provided a framework for nonprofit administrators to embrace time management strategies that could improve funding research efforts and organizational success and effectiveness. Results revealed why some nonprofit administrators do not implement effective time management strategies to augment funding opportunities and improve individual and organizational growth and success.
