Getting Rid of the Rules

November 20, 2008

An excellent post by Mike Moran on his Biznology blog titled; Losing the Web Standards War? Tools, Not Rules

…What each of these techniques have in common is that they make following the rules easier than ignoring them

I actually read that post a few months ago, printed it and stuck it on my wall.

The same advice works in many places in the small business / medium business space.

Because as Mike elaborates, it may be a policy, a guideline, a process, a procedure; basically any method that we use to provide a framework for getting work done, or to use as a tool to improve consistency and reduce training costs.

In the SMB space, the harder we make it to screw up. The less screw ups we have to fix.
