Techy Fun: Good idea shot down – no reason given!

As I’m in the process of slowing shutting down other sites I’ve worked on (due to time constraints), I’m reposting them here. Here’s an article from “Behind The Frontline” which was going to be a cross between I Work With Fools, Worse Than Failure and Dilbert.

Whilst trying to improve productivity at work (and consequently reduce my own workload a bit!), I proposed that we use this new simple to use CRM system (Customer Relationship Management : it’s just a piece of software which stores information and then sends it to the right people). This”ll make it easy for everybody to know what’s going on, what the situation is on everything and to keep customers updated (save us having to bother). Everybody else in the department thought it was a good idea, it’ll save a lot of time and it’ll hardly cost anything.

The Boss shot it down with “I don’t think it’s a good idea”. No other reason given despite us pointing out all the pluses. Turns out, he”s got his own way of working and he doesn”t want to change (even though it means more work for everybody else).

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
