The little fix that could

SHARE this post!

I ran into this great titled article about how IT works in business, Sometimes I think IT is an industry full of witch-doctors, and as much as I agree with the fact that IT has progressed to meetings I am of split minds about this.

One of the political truths of business is that nothing can be done without buyi in from various parts of the organization. That being said there are a lot of times that a good small idea can be crushed by the weight of organization, project planning, change control and meetings. And that is just the IT end of it, once we engage the business the little idea that could becomes even more complex.

One of the things that happens in the workings of IT is the small fix. Often if motivated, an IT person can put a small fix in place much like a small patch and the big machine never knows about this. How often does this happen? How often does this little fix cause a big problem? We wiill never know. As you push small changes and they gather speed there is no way to really track the effect.

What do you think? Is this a problem?

  1. A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you should publish more about this subject matter, it might not
    be a taboo matter but typically people do
    not speak about these issues. To the next! Many thanks!!

  2. Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to
    the whole thing. Do you have any helpful hints for novice blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

  3. My brother recommended I might like this website. He was
    once totally right. This submit truly made my day. You
    cann’t believe just how much time I had spent for this information!

  4. Hello! Quick question that’s entirely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct
    this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!

  5. I am curious to find out what blog system you are working with?
    I’m having some small security problems with my latest
    website and I’d like to find something more safeguarded.
    Do you have any solutions?

  6. Hi there, just became aware of your blog through Google,
    and found that it’s really informative. I am gonna watch out for brussels.

    I’ll appreciate if you continue this in future. Many people will
    be benefited from your writing. Cheers!

  7. Thank you for another magnificent post. The place else may just anybody
    get that kind of info in such an ideal approach of writing?
    I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.

  8. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  9. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and
    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just
    so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
