Time Analysis      

Time analysis is the systematic review of how time is allocated and used within an organization. It involves comparing planned and actual hours spent on tasks, projects, or strategic initiatives to identify discrepancies and inefficiencies. By monitoring and analyzing how time is spent, organizations can better understand their operational efficiency, resource utilization, and the effectiveness of their planning processes.
