  1. Good discussion. I wrote a blog on this topic over 7 years ago. I think you may find some of my examples interesting. http://www.coriandertech.com/2009/11/19/task-breakdown-to-do-or-not-to-do/

    Also - one presumption about tasking is often made and I heard a bit of it in your podcast. Just because you task, doesn't mean you have to estimate those tasks or track them in a tool. I've often told my teams - if you want to break the work down without overhead, here are some sticky notes ... have at it.
