With the ability to model ‘meetings’ in a LINQ sketch (many people connected to a single action), we have found that it is useful to distinguish between the annual hours of the action and the annual hours of the people involved. For example, a weekly meeting with four attendees may take one hour, the annual hours of the meeting equal 52 hours. However, the annual people hours total 208 hours.
To display this distinction, we have added three new properties to action nodes within the Balanced Scorecard dashboard and the Excel exports
- Annual hours – frequency X duration of the action
- People hours – frequency X duration of the action X number of people connected to the action
- System hours – frequency X duration of the action X number of systems connected to the action or connected to people who are connected to the action
