Elegant Solutions for Complex Problems

Plano, TX (PRWEB) February 14, 2014

Mark Woeppel, president and CEO of Pinnacle Strategies, wrote a new blog post discussing the negative impact of multitasking. Every time an engineer, a designer, an operator – or anybody – has to switch from one task to another, valuable time is lost. When the former task is resumed, more time is absorbed coming back to speed or reconstructing the necessary tooling. On either end, the focus that makes work both efficient and rewarding is lost.

“We find that, in general, most project organizations have at least 50% more capacity than they actually need. But their capacity is lost primarily through the stopping and starting, the working out of sequence, the waiting, the set-up times – all of that comes out of not seeing where we are,” stated Woeppel.

Woeppel then explores full kit, a simple solution to help prevent employees from multitasking. This solution is made even easier to implement when using visual project management.
