I am trying to describe two types of related tasks that relate to a common goal.
The best I have come up with for what I am trying to say is some groups of tasks give 'partial payment' and some groups of tasks are 'all or nothing'.
Consider these contrived examples:
- One laborer gets $10 per box to move ten boxes; if the laborer moves just five boxes, he gets $50.
- Steve sets a goal of painting every room in his house one weekend, but only completes three.
- One laborer gets $100 to move 10 boxes, but makes nothing if all 10 boxes are not moved.
- A contractor is paid to paint every room in a house,and is paid 100% in full on completions (say materials are provided).
Pardon the examples, but I think you get my point. I am placing tasks into one of the two categories, but I would like better terms to describe these categories.
