My own data always told me for past couple of years that I cannot handle more than 2 projects at the same time.
Many of my ex-bosses in interest of optimization would assign me to projects in multiple phases.
However every time I get to 3 projects, I always found myself reaching my "break point."
Was wondering if it is really true.
Yesterday, I saw my colleague running 2 parellel projects. I realized through "Step back" the reasons my data was shouting loud at me and I have been egoistically ignoring them for a while.
A manager of small teams/groups, with processes evolving with customer requirements, there is human touch transactions that is very necessary. These take up time that keeping the big picture is a matter of self discipline than a corporate demand.
But this does not still answer the question of "Maxed out @ 3" data.
How many projects do you over see at a single time?
