A case is briefly developed for rationalizing the metric used in Jaquesian level-of-work, responsibility, and time-span capacity determinations. Based on existing data, reasons are given for adopting a base 2 logarithmic scale of organizational time, referred to 1 minute. It is proposed to measure level-of-work, etc., in logarithmic time units 1.t.u.s rather than in the clock and calendar units currently employed. A brief discussion is given of certain extensions of the time-span concept suggested by 1.t.u. scaling. Author
