Planning, implementing, checking

Posted on: January 3, 2021

The person who shared the image in the tweet below probably did not intend to illustrate three important principles of clear messaging.

If you need to send a message, you need to decide what to say and how to say it. This is the planning. In the case of what was most likely a sign for an eatery, the message to potential customers was: We are open for takeout.

But a plan is only as good as its implementation. The message was garbled because the person who pasted the words haphazardly.

Someone on the inside did not bother to check that the message was clear. If they bothered to read it from the outside, they could have rectified the error.

If we are going to transmit messages effectively, we should put at least equal effort into planning, implementing, and checking that our messages are received as intended.
