Are you good or just good enough?
Posted March 7, 2014on:
I have often wondered what the intranet sites of various organizations look like.
Practically any organization worth its salt takes its public face seriously and will try to present the best front possible with its website. After all, everyone and anyone can visit and judge it.
But intranets are a different matter. Things do not need to look pretty and form does not need to meet function. Unfortunately, I think that this is often the case.
The reason for this is simple: If most people outside your house cannot see your laundry, then you can hang it up how ever you wish. Who really cares if the insides of your drawers (not the pants but the furniture) are cluttered if all people see is the wooden veneer?
But I would like to know how much the workers care or how much pride they take in the internal presentation of their work. Is good enough just good enough?
Or do you choose to be the best that you can become even when no one bothers?
