    The Learning Curve Theory

    • 802 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Learning Curves The learning curve, also referred to as the experience curve, is a simplistic, yet powerful, estimating technique which has become an essential concept/tool used for strategic planning within project management (Kerzner, 2013; Lieberman, 1987; Linton & Walsh, 2013). Bailey and Gupta (1999) suggested that the learning curve should probably be called the “forecasting curve” because it is primarily used to forecast the future expenditure of project resources (as cited in McKee & McKee, 2013). This paper will briefly explain the core components of a learning curve analysis, as well as discuss how it can be utilized in project management. Learning Curve Theory The learning curve concept specifies that as tasks are repeated, a certain amount of learning occurs, or experience is gained, which reduces the amount of time required to…

    • 1843 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Doris’s speed. This was not true. Sure, Frank’s speed was now faster than Doris, but it did not tell me anything about the previous distances they had traveled, so I could not assume that Frank passed Doris at ten seconds. Then I realized it might be beneficial to have their values on their own separate graphs. Once they were separated I knew I needed to find the distance traveled for each racer. Since the speed was not constant throughout the race I was not able to find the area in one…

    better. This method is similar to what students will find when they start jobs after graduation. Companies do not reward employees for just doing their best; they reward them for being better than all of one’s coworkers. It also means that the weakest link is the one that gets cut, just like the weakest link in the classroom gets the lowest grade. Effects of Curving Although the curving system is meant to encourage students to perform better by inspiring competition in the classrooms, there are…

    Cullen, Gendreau, Jarjoura, and Wright (1997) provide a compelling refutation of the claim in “The Bell Curve” that low IQ is a key explanatory factor in crime and delinquency. First, they review six meta-analyses (representing over 500 studies) of the predictors of recidivism in adult and juvenile offenders; all of these meta-analyses found effect sizes for IQ ranging from virtually none (.01) to very low (.17). The predictors having the largest effect sizes (.10–.40) were criminogenic risk…

    I haven't read either book so it may be hard for me to compare them to my example that I think comes close to yours. The movie Trouble with the Curve.
