If you don’t where your going how do you know when you get there? A org chart is a great tool to help narrow your focus on your assigned tasks and goals…
The org chart depicts the reporting structure for the ministry and helps volunteers understand who to raise issues, should the need arise. I have seen more than one ministry fail because it lacked a clear understanding of the functional structure and who had the authority to alter job assignments and responsibilities.
Uuuummmm a RSS feed reading e-bunny
Alice wrote earlier about “Cutie Quake” which was … well, almost too cute. Now we have the Nabaztag (which means rabbit in Armenian). It uses has a Wi-Fi connection and reads things like RSS feeds, e-mails and weather reports out loud.
Idea dumping is a lot like brainstorming. (I happen to be an expert on idea dumping because I just made the term up 5 minutes ago.). Brainstorming to me is more of a process where you have a problem, and you try and find a solution to it, with the end goal in mind.
Rosa tell us all about POP2 management
In my neck of the business woods, the one I’ve used with a few customers recently to help them focus is something we’ve been calling POP² management.
P— People concerns come first; staff, customers, all stakeholders. And people are values-driven today, perhaps more than they have ever been.
O— Objective is still important: What we call it now, is usually vision, mission, and strategy. Ultimately, all of those things are people-driven.
P²— Process is still important too, for we can’t ignore task, the transactional stuff of our businesses. However it is Purpose-driven Process. We have no patience for any other kind.
This is for the artsy crowd…
"One of the 1st things I figured out about moleskines, is that things don’t dry quickly. So I cut up a large piece of blotter paper to moleskine size. then clipped the corners with a $5 corner rounder. I slide it under something i am working on. And when I can’t wait for something to dry, I slip one on top and can still close the book."
