time-boxed week cycle. This gave the feedback that the design was better than expected (Estimated
Impact = 20 minutes). It led to a decision to put in some overtime and squeeze a little bit more out of the
design before the next cycle started. This led to saving 45 minutes (112.5% improvement). It also freed up
the remaing 3 w eek cycles before product release to focus on weaker areas (like line 7,11, 13 at less than
100% of target to date). 3. If you measure too few, then the ones you left out, will lack any clout. If you measure
too many, you will also lose out.
