  • Users find multiple paths to basically same function (contact us for different depts, e.g.) or internal depts care about obscure terms only known inside.

  • Examples in internet industry:
    Front-end. PHP. Ruby. HTML5. UX.
    Sysadmin. Perl. Cocoa Touch.
    Analyst. SEO/SEM. Ad Ops. Media buyer.
    Social marketing.

  • What’s best for the individual not always best for the company
    Divisions who had profit no longer do


  • Scrum one example, not for everyone but principles good. Meet same amount in number, less minutes. Means you have to focus and get back to the smaller meetings and tasks that get things done.
  • Not just for techies; if you can make something you do easily replicable across divisions/products/people, share it.
  • start from some place; people often finding editing easier than writing.
  • Sometimes it’s scary to be the first or to question why it’s always been done that way. Be a bridge from old to new.
