Week 3

Week 3

Bryan Nehl - Journal Observationswk3chart

The web part last week took considerably longer than expected because I couldn't find how I had posted the first weeks journal in a table format. I also spent some time trying to find a better way of exporting the pie chart from Excel. No luck. Last weeks actual web time ended up being 58 minutes. Instead of the anticipated 10. This week I will estimate 20 and I will try a different method of posting the table data.

This week, I spent a lot of time working on the paper. I first did a rough outline for the response to the first question. Then I worked on the process improvement diagram, documenting that along the way. Finally, I put together the final version.

Compared to last week, I spent much more time on the paper. There was considerably less reading time though.

The only adjustment I might consider is that for future papers I may start the rough notes in the document that eventually becomes the submitted document. With knowledge gained from the journals, I know I will need to budget considerable time for reading the assigned text book chapters and papers next week. I may also consider a productivity number for writing a paper. Perhaps, at the end, 4 pages / 332 minutes = 0.012 wow!
