A user profiling piece of work got me thinking…..
There seem to be two types of person within a corporation:
- Type 1.0: Safe, slightly bureaucratic, long serving, process driven, organized, like granting/denying access to stuff, like tools to support their work, like document management systems, go on system/process training courses, know and quote many a TLA (three letter acronym)
- Type 2.0: Innovative, scrappy, shorter serving, don’t like access controls, don’t like document management systems, have a tendency to ‘wing it’, like tools that get out of the way quickly, avoid system/process training courses if at all possible, like meeting people, don’t like to use TLA’s
I fit the type 2 model (for better or worse), and prefer best in class web2.0/social software tools. Most of the type 1’s I know prefer SharePoint and stuff that integrates with SharePoint.
What type are you and which tools do you prefer? Will the type 2’s learn to love SharePoint as it evolves?
