I was updating a colleague about some things that we are doing and exploring last week. One of the things he commented on was the issue of "The Hammer".
In dealing with today’s innovation and finding out a home for it, we somethimes get caught thinking that because we have a hammer everything looks like a nail. I think this is natural and that is where proper evaluation and context capture is important before going to far with anything – be smart about it. Some examples as things that we have been talking about on the blog:
- Innovation vs The Way we do it Now – quite often how we do things now is actually fine
- Agile vs Waterfall – they both have a home in an organization
- SOA, Data SOA, ________ add your particular flavour here.
