Teamwork around goals does not happen automatically. Rule based methods for defining good can seem somewhat ad hoc to many team members, leaving many projects slightly off target.  The Japanese auto industry came to world dominance by using consensus building tools to efficiently allocate traditional industrial resources to best meet market needs. An cornerstone but often overlooked tool, called Single Minute Exchange of Die, focused on proper selection and management of a specific Interval of Interest.  This obsessive focus on Interval of Interest, and the list of activities that impinge on that interval (specifically adjustment), can alter the mobile user experience in positive ways. This talk shows how a procedural approach to Interval of Interest drives work and sacrifice in the design of several mobile applications that help people plan, manage and coordinate social interaction.
