Fast Company Article:

This may lead to an endless cycle of unfinished work that could be taking place which can be extremely frustrating. Rather than using a list that has to continually be reshuffled and working your way through this list with no real idea of how long it takes to complete, schedule your workdays into blocks of time with each block dedicated to a specific task or project. This will help you have a more productive work life and put things where they need to be with some time for what you need to get done. In addition to having these blocks of time set aside for your tasks, make sure you have some buffer time to handle projects that tend to run over their allotted time slots.

This may work for you at your company as well.
