Thumb on the Hose

Posted on:March 22, 2023 at 12:43 PM

Since multi-tasking is a myth we should focus on doing one thing well and one thing fast. This also works with teams. Like putting your thumb over the end of a hose, reducing work in progress (WIP) can speed everything up. Think of the team like a single brain - each part is focused on the same area, each loaded up with the same information, each processing, exploring, and solving problems for the group as a whole. Two minds are always better then one when focusing on a single thing.
