We study relaxation dynamics of chiral transport phenomena and spin polarization in Quark-Gluon Plasma in both weakly and strongly coupled regimes. These relaxation dynamics determine the important dynamical time scale for achieving equilibrium spin-polarization of quasi-particles in the presence of magnetic field and fluid vorticity, which are time-dependent in heavy-ion collisions. This is also important in the time-dependence of the Chiral Vortical Effect. Our results should be crucial in a reliable quantitative study of $\Lambda$ baryon polarization in off-central heavy-ion collisions.
