The Weekly ReBoot - Mini Hack #15 Pomodoro Technique


Today another mini hack and it’s not strictly something linked to the Agile community and it’s certainly not something I invented but it is a good companion tool to working with agility and also levelling up your personal performance and it’s called Pomodoro Technique.

Named Pomodoro after the kitchen timers that come in the shape of a tomato the Pomodoro Technique was invented by a man called Francessco Cirillo in the early 1990’s when Francessco was at University looking to get more done in less time.

Here’s an easy to understand video about Pomodoro Technique.
