As usual, Tim's got some great
stuff to read:
People, on average and in the long term, aren't stupid and aren't
patient and aren't cowards. When there's an obviously better way to
get the job done, they go out and get it, and management can't stop
them, and Forrester and Gartner can't stop them, and Accenture and EDS
can't stop them, and not even Microsoft can stop them.
His commentary reminds me of the stuff the "IT Services"
organization at my previous job
tried to pull off. The standardized, locked-down, centrally
controlled desktop plan
comes to mind.
I was always amused, as an IT Services employee, how you heard a
completely different story when you talked with actual users
instead of IT Services project managers.
