The Dark Age Of Computing Continues Apace
Exactly: Almost nobody cares. Technology requires comprehension, which is too difficult for execuTards. Therefore, stupid reigns. And You Can't Stop Stupid.
This is CLASSIC technology project management HELL. The only way to get things done correctly, very sad to say, is to go TYPE A on everyone and become a Napoleon. That works great in the short term, as long as Napoleon knows exactly what he's talking about AND has people around him who know all the critical details he couldn't possibly keep in his single sized human brain.
Again world: Technology requires COMPREHENSION. You can't skim through it and survive. You will be metaphorically killed if you go slacker on the job. PAY the experts for their expertise and FOLLOW their expertise to that finish line called SUCCESS.
Again, for the uninitiated, The Problem Solving Protocol:
1) IDENTIFY the problem.
2) CREATE a solution.
3) ENACT the solution.
4) VERIFY the solution worked.
- AND - My own addition -
5) Keep the marketing people OUT of The Problem Solving Protocol, except as sources of marketing information and advice. NEVER allow them to be in decision positions. If you do, you're gonna have a bad time and so are your customers. Marketing-As-Management is a prime business project KILLER.
