Effective time management is very important in determining a success of any project. Thus, without proper controlling of time will cause project delay and consequently budget overrun. There are various techniques and software which can be adopted for controlling time in construction projects. Hence, this study is to assess the effectiveness of various techniques of time managements and software packages applied in Malaysia’s construction industry. Data collection was carried out quantitatively using structured questionnaire survey amongst the practitioners involved in construction projects. Average index calculation was employed to assess the level of effectiveness of time management techniques and software packages adopted in construction project. It was found that two most effective techniques adopted in Kedah and Kelantan are the same for CPM and Gantt Bar Chart. While the three most effective software packages used for time management for both states are Microsoft Project, Microsoft Excel and Primavera. Hence, it is recommended that time management practices need to be investigated in detail to uncover any activity or action which may contribute to time overrun.
