Over-docking and under performing
By docking, I mean documentation and information systems.
Are we putting too much faith in information. Will more information really lead to better performance and better results? At what point do the returns start diminishing?
I spend most my days filling either filling in forms or creating forms for others to fill in. The forms I create probably require too much information and the forms that I fill out often requires more information than necessary.
Sure the information could be used to fill out a glorious report but really, is any of this necessary. The information is kept on file just in case. Most likely it is never needed and when it is needed it will be hard to find.
