Thank you for your valuable thoughts and expertise!
It is definitely beneficial to ask someone who already got through similar scenario instead of re-inventing the wheel.
Will keep you posted once there is development on the topic , so maybe it can summarized in to a case study later. 1 year, 3 months ago
Thank you for pointing out the bigger picture Mike! Actually the Project Manager in the company had started evaluating the current tasks needed to complete the development phase in order to fully evaluate the end to end time needed to be invested in order to deliver a project to a client.

I will follow up with more details when I have them.
Meanwhile, please do not hesitate to share additional feedback or more ideas as well.

Guys, I would like to thank you for the proper guidance!
Based only on 2 hour work , we defined 3 quick wins( directly suggested by employees) and at least 30 possible causes to dig deeper.
My next plan is to gather with the team and either group and categorize the possible causes and dig deeper(5 Why’s) or directly think for resolutions for some…[Read more]

…and one additional question – what will be the optimal way of trackingnoting the way they work ?
1. Sit next to them asking to guide me through what they do and how they do it
2. Take notes and later on my own add it in written OR do some process map based on each persons’ understanding
How will you do it? What will be your best approach?…[Read more]
Really appreciate the time taken to give me those valuable hints!

The high level process is: Em…[Read more]
