Information about Numbers simulation - less is more!

## Description

This is a little simulation that I have run numerous times. It shows in a very direct and apparent way that the less things we do at the same time, the faster each thing runs. In other words: Limit you WIP!

I like this exercise since it can be run by a single person or by many (64 is my record) and still get the message across.

This presentation is a simulation of the simulation, so if you click through the slides fast you get a little animation feature as well as timing.

Numbers simulation A interactive demonstration Marcus Hammarberg

Simulation goals • Three projects – Write letters: A – J, with blue pen – Write roman numbers: I – X, with red pen – Write numbers: 1 – 10, with black pen • Measure two times: – Time to complete each project – Time to complete all project • Run two times: 1. Row by row 2. Column by column

Compare All at once • Total time: 01.30 • Project 1: 01.24 • Project 2: 01.27 • Project 3: 01:30 • 94 slides (transitions) One at the time • Total time: 00.34 (38 %) • Project 1: 00.12 (14%) • Project 2: 00.23 (26%) • Project 3: 00.34 (38%) • 36 slides (transitions)

Takeaways • Total time goes down • Time per project goes WAY down • Most important (project 1) is finished much earlier • Better quality • Less stress • Better focus • Just by doing one thing at the time…
