Increase business productivity by promoting a culture of accountability

As a graduate business student and a voracious reader of articles, I have come across the term Pomodoro Technique a lot over the last few months. It is a time management and productivity theory developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. When I first saw it mentioned I had two questions: “Why on earth is it called the Pomodoro Technique?” and “Why does this work?”

The answer to the first question is simple. Cirillo used a tomato-shaped kitchen timer when developing this theory, and pomodoro is the Italian word for tomato! The second question is a little more complicated but equally as engaging!
