The ALPEN method is a method that helps to get the daily time management in projects under control faster. This method (according to Lothar J. Seiwert) uses a few minutes per day to create a written daily plan.

I have included this method in this book because the new ideas and projects are often lost in day-to-day business, especially during the implementation phase, as the time management of most participants is not yet optimal and synchronous.

In addition, the method about the word "Alps" is child's play and easy to remember and it works simply and reliably. Generally speaking, good and efficient time management plays a very important role in all innovative companies today, as the pace of our business does not slow down, but beats faster and more complex every day.

But time management must not be a theory with a frustratingly long list of unfinished tasks every day. The simple "ALPEN" memorizing scheme, which has also helped me on the path of good time management very often, helps to make this planning realistic.
