Introduce SBTM with the Pomodoro Technique?

I recently organized a book-circle at the client I’m at, where we read “Pomodoro Technique Illustrated” by Staffan Nöteberg. It basically teaches you simple time management technique that helps you stay focused and productive.

I have summarised the basic principles the mindmap below, but I would recommend to read the book in its entirety to get the whole picture. At 127 pages with loads of pictures it is a quick and easy read. It is also well suited for a book-circle since each chapter ends with review questions.

What quickly became obvious to me being a software tester is how similar the approach is to Session-Based Test Management (SBTM). This book is not only useful for improving personal efficiency but I also think it could be excellent in building the case for SBTM and by doing that making SBTM easier to introduce and implement. (I have described SBTM in a previous post).
