Greg Morgan writes in reply to Ravi:
Twenty people doing a job in five months is one hundred man-mont
You need to understand 10 people each walked 10 minutes, and when counted as a sequential set of processes, it is 100 minutes walked.

Imagine it as a baton race, 10 runners running 10 minutes each. Each runner ran 10 minutes, but the entire race lasted 100 minutes.

Imagine it as a baton race, organised by a game of Chinese Whispers. It will take at least 200 man-minutes, and which way were we running again?
