A blog looking at business communication, knowledge management, scripting tools, OS technology news and other things of interest to mobile tech workers. As I find interesting news this will also contain pointers to thoughts related to configuration managment, change management and general software development.
I want to go back and add to an earlier post on status reports. McGee picks up on a Roland Tanglao comment on the whole Status Reports Blogging thing.
Roland notes that transparency is the sticking point. As I mentioned in an earlier post this has been my experience as well. It is a little scary being the first one in an organizatoin trying to open the windows on my work patterns and daily accomplishments. But, there is tremendous value to working this transparently. The peer review, input, mentoring opportunities ... do make it worthwhile.
This is all in addition to the getting closer to finding the Holy Grail of replacing status reports altogether with something that actually works.
