Selection Process

Selection Process published on No Comments on Selection Process

This comic is based on an actual real-life experience.

Ok, well, it wasn’t EXACTLY like this, but it sure felt like it at the time. There was a workshop to select the product features of a new piece of software with so many different areas of the business involved that the process got nowhere. Everyone wanted everything and it felt like we were doing what the guy in this comic is doing – a totally random selection of features.
By the way – the product also never ended up getting made (what a surprise!).

Keep the WFH culture

As we begin to exit the COVID lockdown stages worldwide, many companies are hoping to help their staff once again embrace the idea of wanting to return to the office.
But a quick scan of recent articles online show that there is a massive amount of resistance to this, from the employees.

The pandemic has shown us all, in no uncertain terms, that many jobs can be effectively completed from a home working environment. But companies seem to be reluctant to admit this and even whilst spouting their belief that a “new normal” is required for how we perform our jobs, they are also extremely keen to return to safety of the way things were.

Hopefully companies will realise that ‘Productivity does not equal Place’ and give us all varied options for how we do our work, from now and into the future.

PS: ZOOM fatigue is a real thing and I am sick of saying “You are on mute” to others…

TikTok is the world’s most popular app amongst Generation Z users right now.
So if you were born after 1999, you probably won’t ‘really’ know what it is all about

It is currently reported to have more than 800 million active users (as at May 2020) and nearly half of all TikTok users are aged between 16 and 24.
It has become the go-to platform to use for trying to influence and market to a younger audience.
As always – some attempts are great and many are just… desperate cringeworthy attempts to “relate”.
