Why "Pack of 7"
"The important thing about the number 7 is not the number, but the message. It tells us to always be aware of how important organisational decisions are.
Team structure, Time and Task Planning, Quality and Expectation Management... The right decisions result in great quality, high speed and low costs to secure the project goals and thereby our client’s goals."
- Peter Potrafky
The decision to start Pack of 7 was made by Peter Potrafky on a Sunday (7th day of the week) in 2014 ( 2+0+1+4 = 7 ). The company started with a small team of 7 people. So far, the dates were coincidental but the number 7 was very present. With our collective experience, we knew that the number 7 was a powerful number when it comes to organising structures, the behaviour of systems and the capacity of the human brain.
Most people can retain roughly seven items of information in their short-term memory. Seven is also a good fit for our attention span, as long as the information is presented in seven groups. That is why phone numbers in the U.S. and many other countries tend to have seven digits. Or think about the week with its 7 days – a great number to keep an overview and plan your life based on that partitioning.
Traditionally, number seven has been given precedence over other numbers by many cultures and religions. The 7 capital sins and the 7 catholic Sacraments, the 7 days resulting in the Creation of the World mentioned in the Bible, the 7 chakras in Hinduism, the ancient Jewish candelabrum with 7 candles and the 7 wonders of the world.
Nature also seems to like the 7 as it is very prevalent. There are 7 oceans, 7 continents, 7 vertebrae in the neck, 7 layers of skin, ocean waves roll in sevens, the global economy has a 7-year cycle, the rainbow has 7 colours, sound has 7 notes, there are 7 holes in your head (go ahead and count them).
The more we thought about the number the more we found that we are subconsciously using it in our own daily work as well. 7 people is a very good team size with good spirit to solve one specific problem. 7 is the right number of tasks to work on at the same time. We have made good experiences with dividing the time period between design to deployment in 7 milestones. In working with us you will find the number 7 from time to time on different occasions since it is part of several of our processes.
