Let’s talk about email - Or actually, let’s talk about communication. All communication is designed to change behavior.

My readers know my hang up with R=Q*A so in this case, the result of the change in behavior is depending on the quality of the message you are sending and the acceptance of it by your target audience.

Politics in the workplace - It is a worldwide issue; should you allow or encourage or discourage politics in the workplace? There may not be an election at the moment but there are always things happening and being decided and so the question is always relevant as your employees will have an opinion on everything.

Fight the beta mistakes! - The alpha mistake is usually easily spotted. When you accept something you shouldn’t have people will notice. The issue comes when you have failed to accept something, or see something that you should have recognized. This is known as the beta mistake and there is in general little risk with it.

Scope creep killed the project - Although I’m a stickler for Goal Clarity I stumble from time to time over lack of goal clarity that looms everywhere. The most recent example was with a little IT project that we, my son and I, would accomplish for the business of my wife. Doing business with family members is hard enough but yet we tried.
