Subject:Re: How do we measure writer efficiency? From:Bob Morrisette <robert -dot- morrisette -at- EBAY -dot- SUN -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 13 Dec 1996 13:29:54 -0800
I know this was discussed before when I wasn't interested.
I've searched the archives and found very little.
We have been asked to increase our efficiency and
come up with a way to measure efficiency.
Are there any groups out there who have found a valid
way to measure writer efficiency or a way that would
look valid to upper management? Do we have to define
metrics to do any measuring? I have until Wednesday
to come up with a brilliant plan.
Thanks for any advice.
