Case Study 12.1 The Problems of Multitasking

  1. How does multitasking confuse the resource availability of project team personnel?
  2. “In modern organizations, it is impossible to eliminate multitasking for the average ­employee.” Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why?
  3. Because of the problems of multitasking, project managers must remember that there is a difference between an activity’s duration and the project calendar. In other words, 40 hours of work on a project task is not the same thing as one week on the baseline schedule. Please comment on this concept. Why does multitasking “decouple” activity duration estimates from the project schedule?
