I will try to post another major blog either tomorrow or the next day. But meanwhile, for those who like posers (as opposed to poseurs!), here is a little problem to solve.
If you think you know the answer, feel free to supply it by clicking on the COMMENT function. Under any circumstances, I will provide the answer at the end of my next blog post.
So here is the circumstance:
We have a project to complete. It consists exclusively of work to be done on a computer: data analysis of a previously-performed study and writing up the results, findings and recommendations.
The project consists of exactly 62 eight-hour days of work effort. None of it can be done in parallel and it must all be done by a single resource who will work and produce for exactly eight hours per day, producing one work day of effort every day. No overtime is allowed.
The work is scheduled to start April 1. But it MUST end no later than May 31..
If it starts April 1, how is it possible to complete the 62 days of effort by the end of May 31?
Fraternally in project management,
Steve the Bajan
