On his table, Weinberg (1992) tried to quantify the time lost “jumping” within projects. A lot of researches show and affirm that multitasking kills efficiency.

Unfortunately, in nowadays world, is impossible to do one thing at the time so how to be efficient while managing several projects?

First we must set up a methodology that will help us to gather information as soon as possible on the Projects, so we will need to spend more time on the initial phases of the project (analysis and planning). Then we should try to have smaller teams, more focused on fewer projects, that will help the team members to collaborate more, learn more and be quicker on delivering. Most of the times the ability of multitasking is considered a great skill, do you think so?
