Timebox

Defintion

A timebox, in project management terms, is a fixed length of time. Activities are assigned to this timebox and can only be completed within this period of time. Once the time period is over, the team has to move on to the next set of activities, even if the previous set of activities could not be fully completed. This approach to project management - called timeboxing - is typically used to ensure that projects are delivered on time, even at the risk of not meeting their requirements in full.
