Frequently Asked Questions

Why would you do a resource tepee?

The Tepee (US patent 7,495,673 B1) provides a one page graphic to summarize structured tabular data, which can use an intuitive representation instead of the usual large spreadsheets. Many applications are possible as any table in rows and columns with any quantitative content and some natural or induced ordering can be displayed using a Tepee. In the organizational structure context, the resource tepee can help organizations make fair and ethical choices about resource distribution as it is tool which allows us to look at all levels and functions in an organization when making attrition, growth or reorganization decisions.
