We’re not even through the month yet and I continue to be frustrated with the type of news I see from companies and organizations that should know better. It’s the same old story. And I know I’m not the only one that feels this way. But when these pieces come out, it causes me to wonder a couple of things. Decisions aren’t made on the whim. Like many orgs, these decisions go up a chain of people for approval. This happens at startups and non-startups. The companies in question are massive organizations. Secondly, my next question is wondering who is in the room. How many people make these decisions and who do they represent? Because it’s clearly not their customers.
I could dive deeper into each piece, but it’s not worth the time – right now. For now, I want to put this out there and make it known and it’s likely we’ll have to circle back on this again. Here are the pieces in question:
