Complexity Sneaks Up On You

April 15, 2009

When you start blogging – it seems funny how you can turn the most mundane thing into an idea (my wife says desperation, but hey!)

So here it is!

I had a burned out bulb in a lamp at home. Now I have an entire utility room shelf dedicated to spare bulbs – and that is the problem.

You buy a lamp – you really, really don’t think of what bulb type it takes do you?

I have lights and lamps with these;

and these – yes these too;

There are compact fluorescent, fluorescent, (straight, round and two sizes, halogen, candelabra, in three sizes and two base widths,some frosted some not, two sizes of globes,

Well you get the idea

Complexity sneaks up on you, you don’t plan for it.

It happens because;

  • No one is accountable for planning
  • Someone wants a special something
  • Someone else insists that this one is better than that

The SMB Takeaway

You must manage your IT Infrastructure. You must plan it, and articulate it.

Because you don’t Plan for complexity – it does quite well on its own.

    Ahh! too true raino!

    Not to mention – that with a shelf full of bulbs, I don’t have the one I need – a trip to get one is required!

    Thanks for dropping by 🙂
