Hi Rogerio,

The name of the method comes from it's resemblance to the Pick Up Sticks Game, which is sometimes called Mikado in Europe and mostly just pick-up-sticks in the U.S.

Mikado roughly translates to 'Emperor (of Japan)' and is also the highest scoring stick in the game. We think the game is a great metaphor for large restructurings.
