Contrary to what I stated in the prior post, I most defintely do NOT what a do-over. Enough said about that!
So today was not a treat at all, but perhaps I have improved my disposition toward IT governance. The principles are good, but the implementation is stifling. Before researching it more today, I was mostly familiar with the negative aspects of surveillance and controls. Now I understand how governance can serve as a tool to drive communication and even collaboration in some cases. Peter Drucker's quote comes to mind, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast."
I've spent all day on this laptop and here I am blogging?? I must be crazy. Time to light a candle, turn off the lights, and practice karate. My black belt (studio belt) test is coming up next month. I know the stuff, but the question is whether or not I can remember it all on the same day. It's a lot to remember: kata, basic techniques, 3 levels of one steps, single and double counters, combinations, phase kicks, 30 movements, pad drills, defensives, elbow drills, code of ethics, counting, and terms.
Looking for a new dissertation topic...that too. HEAVY, HEAVY, HEAVY!!!!!!!!
