Agile v Traditional Housekeeping methods

  1. There is a subtle bug in the cartoon based on my own experience at our housekeeping at home. The washing machine usually takes less time to wash the cloths as the dryer takes to dry them. So the label of the two machines should be exchanged.

  2. Markus,
    Interesting point. I've used big tumble dryers in the past (in launderettes) and they've been quicker than a washing machine. But I must admit, my experience with dryers is pretty limited.

  3. Ah, in that case, maybe context matters (as always).

  4. I generally don't take my washing out of the washing machine every so often, dry them and throw them back in the washing machine...

    I would say that laundry is a waterfall model.

  5. How about a burndown chart to show how much my shirts have shrunk with each dry cycle?

  6. My Mom never use dyers so did we. Mom said dryers contribute a lot in massive global warming that's why she let the clothes dry under the sun. She also loves those cleaning companies in Calgary that uses green products and methods in housekeeping. I think we should all take part in saving our planet.

  7. Hey Andy, love this cartoon and the point that there might be a long way to get to really fast fast cycles. I would love to see you have a go at creating a third line on the cartoon based on a hungry spider, creates a spider's web and ends up with "potentially edible food", with a wee fly caught in the spiders' web - just a thought! Basically, building on the time reduction theme from weeks to days to hours to mins, D:)
