For one fiscal quarter, I tried an experiment to boost my firm’s productivity. By the quarter’s end, the results were clear— painfully clear.
Like many custom software agencies, we estimate and bill our work based on the hours our developers devote to client projects. Given that our developers are expected to work 40 hours a week, it seemed logical that the more of those hours they devoted to client work, the more productive they would be and the easier it would be to meet our quarterly fiscal goals.
