I had an interesting conversation with another consultant today. We were discussing the virtues of BaseCamp, a project & team collaboration tool from 37Signals. I recently implemented it across 5 projects being run by Sutton, Merton & Kingston Councils, London.
He mentioned that one of the shortfalls he considered important, was the inability to define a folder structure and hierarchy when storing documents. Initially, I found myself agreeing. However, the precursor to this conversation was around the differences between Mac and Windows. Me, being of the former persuasion, I thought about how I use my Mac to find a document I need. I use Spotlight... 95% of the time. Not something that works very well on Windows. The indexing service is one of the major contributors to the negative performance on ill-spec'd machines and any requested searches only seem to contribute to the problem.
When people hear ‘solutioneering’ for the first time, they often ask me to spell it. Usually, when I’m on the phone needing to relate my email address.
In less than 5 years, I’m going to ensure this is no longer the case. Now, I could take the easy option and change my email address, but for reasons I’m not entirely sure about, I’m on a personal mission to make the term Solutioneering as ubiquitous and relevant as Engineering is to the tangible, mechanical aspects of our lives.
