Making Connections

Found this posting on The Artful Manager talking about why we should care about podcasting as rather insightful.

Found this posting on The Vision Thing talking about "process predators" as if they were evil things.

Actually, the process predators are probably just as creative as the originator of the idea.

They recognize it, and are able to apply it to something else. No small matter.

Are they always lurking around? Some may be but I would not caste all process predators in the same lot.

The fact that you can put one and one together and get a two that is different from someone else's two, I think is good. This is learning. This is adapting.

The fact that an a-ha moment can come at any time (and usually does) may create a perception that some were lurking. It may just be that after a series of so-so days, they had a good day, hit the a-ha moment (finally) and made some progress.

Andrew has come up with a number of extension of podcasting to artistic organizations. I would propose that this listing can be extended to any number of businesses.

In a competitive market, is this an evolutionary step or the result of a predator?

What do you think?

I don't know about "evil". :-)

The main thrust of the post was to identify, and try to protect, your organization's "identity" processes. Creativity is indeed "eclectic", and I am not begrudging that.

My wife is much more militant against "lurkers" - people who don't actually try to do anything on their own, they wait around to exploit someone else's efforts, often borrowing against the existing things "brand equity", so to speak.

There was a Dilbert book or strip once about making "Popsi-Cola" that illustrates this.
