Time Bandit Solution proved to be a tedious deed due to outside distractions ie., joke. On a more serious note, having an office with floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to the floor, I know all too well about the perils of interruptions and distractions. In fact, this summary is timely as I am in the midst of identifying more effective ways for both my staff and I to become more efficient. Transparency is not our challenge, but rather designed culture of ‘controlled chaos’ which naturally causes turbulence. I appreciated Brown’s notions of work momentum and ‘batch-processing’. On the other-hand, the suggestion of ‘scripting’ and ‘role-playing’ in order for people to better understand the basics, likely will not be embraced my colleagues and friends.
