The idea of clicking many times to take one action on your computer or system is a waste of time, and it doesn't add value to what you are doing.
Every company or project activity incurs costs, whereas some add value to the final product and others don't.
✦ Value-added activities are necessary to produce goods to the customer's specifications. They will generate results customers are willing to pay for.
✦ Non-value-added activities are a waste. They incur costs but do not generate more value, utility, or satisfaction for the customer or final project.
