Question your work – (37signals)

Based on the large corporate wide project I’ve been working on lately I really wish everyone could avoid the “group think” and ask themselves Jason’s questions from this post. I just spent 45 minutes discussing whether or not there should be a “corporate governance” around using dashes (-) vs underscores (_) in course IDs within the new LMS.

  • Why are we doing this?
  • What problem are we solving?
  • Is this actually useful?
  • Are we adding value?
  • Will this change behavior?
  • Is there an easier way?
  • What’s the opportunity cost?
  • Is it really worth it?
