They gain capacity the more you use them. Unfortunately, they can also get used to inactivity. Which way are you going?
I once had a customer to ask me to go through an application and do screen-shots. I am not a tech writer and I had no use for them. I said, "ok. Your dime." $200+ an hour! I don't know what people are thinking sometimes....smh
They wanted them for technical documentation and training, but still I promise you, a third grader could have completed the task.
In time I "managed" to build a workload of a relatively healthy mixture of mindless and mindful tasks, because I make use of mindless tasks as an opportunity to relieve stress from challenging (sometimes frustrating) tasks. I believe we need them too. I don't like CPU (in my head) to run at 100% capacity all the time.
...when someone else is paying the bill. Who wants to pay a consultant to do task that could be done by lower paid staff? It just doesn't make good money sense. When I am in a vendor manager role, consultants can do mindless tasks on their time; not mine. I need them focused on tasks that my staff can't accomplish without help.
