What is Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks (3-5 minutes). Each session is known as a Pomodoro, from the Italian word for 'tomato'.There are many variations on the this approach. These allow individuals to tailor the principles of the Pomodoro Technique to better suit their personal working style.
