Individuals vary in the way they schedule their daily tasks. Past research documented two scheduling styles that most individuals adopt: clock-time (where tasks are organized by an external clock) and event-time (where tasks are organized by the order of their completion). Recent research found that adopting either style markedly shapes individuals’ personal control and their ability to savor (Sellier & Avnet 2014). This presentation discusses these first findings, and pinpoints implications of adopting either scheduling style for unplanned consumption and food consumption behaviour.

Dr. Anne-Laure Sellier is an Associate Professor of Marketing at HEC Paris. Anne-Laure completed her initial training in business at the HEC School of Management (France), followed by a public administration Master at the Bocconi University (Italy), and an MBA from Warwick University (England). She then worked in the pharmaceutical industry, before undertaking a Ph.D. in management at INSEAD (France). Prior to joining HEC Paris, Anne-Laure was a faculty member at the London Business School in England, and at the Stern Business School of New York University, in the USA. She also taught at the Columbia Business School (USA).

Her current research interests are in the area of time perception influences on decision-making, creativity, self-regulation, self-control, consumer happiness, cognitive biases, and generally in how emotions and cognitions interact in judgment and decision-making. Anne-Laure has published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Marketing Research, the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and the Journal of Consumer Psychology.
