Concepts associated with human task allocation and partitioning: division of labour, task analysis, and workflow. [1]


"Task partitioning refers to innovation projects that are partitioned into smaller tasks. Professor Von Hippel proposes that “problem-solving inter-dependence among tasks can be predicted in many projects and can then be managed by strategies involving (1) adjustment of the task specifications and/or (2) reduction of the barriers to problem-solving interaction across selected or all task boundaries.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_von_Hippel)
