Task Bundling means a consolidation of two or more smaller tasks into a single entity (such as task group, goal, project) in which the aggregate value, size and performance require a single effort applied to all the tasks. As a rule, bundled or consolidated tasks appear to be performed with a lower effort than the total of their individual efforts.
Task bundling is a practice of making similar and related tasks more manageable and executable. This practice is widely used in task and project management. An employee assigned to a bundle of tasks should regard this buddle as a single project or goal for accomplishment. Before applying effort to the bundle, the employee needs to estimate time and other resources required. Success will be reached if the employee realizes that bundled tasks create a new entity that requires other (lower) amount of resources than the total of individual resource estimates of the tasks.
Task bundling is close to task categorization. Through bundling it is possible to create task categories. Both terms use the same principle of consolidation that tells two or more related or similar tasks can be consolidated into a single entity, with the assumption that the new entity requires other amount of resources and effort.
