Lean Blog Interviews — Dave Crenshaw, The Myth of Multitasking

Can you believe this is Episode #100 of my podcast? Lots of great guests in the last four years and Dave Crenshaw is the latest interesting guest. He is the author of the book The “Myth of Multitasking: How “Doing It All” Gets Nothing Done” (which he talke about today) and his new book “Invaluable: The Secret to Becoming Irreplaceable.” In this podcast, Dave and I talk about so-called multitasking – why are we so tempted to do it, what are the costs of this switching back and forth between tasks, and what are some alternatives for individuals and for organizations?
