This ran a couple weeks ago (Turn Out The Lights) to see if I could spark a discussion about how/when/why we might think more about costs incurred by the way we provide solutions. Based on the follow-on discussion I didn’t quite achieve that. It reminds me that there is a fair amount of resentment (for lack of a better word) about how things are done/handed to us and that in turn maybe makes us a little cynical at times about the value of trying to reduce costs. Of course it’s not as simple as ‘use less’, we have to provide the performance when needed and that’s typically an opposite condition.
I want to try this one again, but I think at a higher level, about frustration and bad decisions.
