Not sure of what you're asking. If it is in regards to a navigation training technique in which you alternate following bearings while one navigator stands still, then I'd say it's not a technique worth knowing:-).
There is a bushwhacking method with three people where one advances at a time keeping all three in a straight line. There aren't many cases when it would be effective / efficient... but it's used when you don't have a target for keeping your bearing.
On bushwhacks you can use a variation whereby your navigator stays, for example, on one side of a river where you can't cross while a teammate goes upstream and crosses and comes back down river where the navigator can get them to stop on the right bearing.
