and Lillian Gilbreth, as they “analyzed their actions and made adjustments to speed up their task” (Carpenter, Bauer & Erdogan, 2010, p. 130). They determined the best and most efficient way for this to be done, the optimal number of people they would need to set these up, and how long they believed this process would take. At the end of this afternoon, an estimate was made and that was relayed into the schedule for the weekend seminar. Having seen this process first-hand it was clear that, although not perfect and an exact science, it was an important task to undertake. During the seminar the staff set up the tents more than an hour quicker than their first attempt in the park as they had a better understanding of the process. Without this trial- run, the estimation on the schedule for the seminar would have been complete guess work based on very little, which could have led to disorder at the seminar. The estimations provided by the staff who oversaw this process were accurate, and as such the seminar was not impacted by this process. Although the collective amount of time taken to both practice for the tent setup and the actual setup on the seminar took longer than if there was no practice at all, the time impact on the seminar itself was minimized, which was critical. Time was allocated to the seminar schedule for this process that made sense. The time that was saved long-term for the organization, when noting the use of these tents in other seminars, made this process worthwhile.

Seems every time I try to plan my weekend at DragonCon down to the minute, something never fails to either end early or run thirty minutes late. 41 words Permalink | Show parent | Reply Re: Learning Guide Unit 3 by Rebecca Davis - Sunday, 23 September 2018, 12:20 PM Currently at work we have a two week pay period that ends on Sundays.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
