helping people break out of pigeonholes since 2003

That’s the way the business structure crumbles…

TAGS: None

An IM conversation with Alec a few days back threw up this pearl of wisdom about the process of introducing and implementing stuff that actually works in companies.

Parallel reinvention and management argumentation:

  1. we don’t need this
  2. who’ll pay for it
  3. here’s our solution we bought it and people will use it irrespective that it sucks
  4. oh to hell with it let them do what they want
  5. management adoption of the field’s preferred tool

So very very true. Sigh.

    Ah, yes. Thankfully between 4 and 5 now. The first three were horrible.

    Unbelievable though it may seem it is possible to implement stuff that works.

    1. Define the process
    2. Ask the people in the process what they need to make it better (they know this)
    3. Let them implement it (they will do this as they know it will work)

    Requires a step of faith from management as outcome is unknown but usually better.
