Μια ιστορία/λογοπαίγνιο με πολλές αναφορές στα πραγματικά τεκταινόμενα στις διάφορες ομάδες έργου (με την ελλειπή κατάτμηση και ανάθεση εργασιών) αλλά και με ύφος παρακίνησης για πρωτοβουλίες, κυκλοφορεί σε πολλές εκδοχές στο web. Αντιγράφω μια από αυτές:
There were once four members of a project team:
Everyone, Someone, Anyone and No-one
Like all projects there are some important tasks to do,
Everyone was really busy and was sure that Someone had more time to do most of these tasks, but Someone thought Anyone could do them.
However Anyone couldn’t do them, and so unless Anyone made Someone realise that Someone was the best person to do those jobs, Everyone ended up allocating the jobs to No-one.
Sadly No-one wasn’t very good at getting these jobs done, so the result was a disaster, which impacted Everyone.
Everyone ended up angry with Someone, because Everyone knew that Someone could do the jobs better better than No-one.
Till next week, be the Someone who takes action!
