A week in Tweets: 15-21 August 2010

I fear I’ve overdone it this week – almost twice as many as usual. Still, that’s what I collected as the week’s Tweets and links, so here y’is, y’all. Usual categories, after the usual ‘Read more…’ link.

A brief exchange about ‘Theory X’ and ‘Theory Y’ managers:

  • taotwit: Obs. frm @tetradian on X & Y: CxOs & Doers often need to think Y whereas Middle-management focus on X #storyb4br http://tinyurl.com/3488rlj // X and Y Theory: http://bit.ly/dqooS2 – Storyboards must work for both Y and X Starts with Y but is reality-checked by X #storyb4br
  • Cybersal: @taotwit I haven’t honestly come across that many X (authoritarian) managers in my working life – perhaps I have been fortunate.
  • taotwit: @Cybersal  I’m using X & Y as a shorthand to also refer to Roger Martin’s design PoV Validity (Y) v Reliability(X) http://bit.ly/92yOGa // ..and information system types a la Cynefin Adaptive ‘Y’ and Complicated ‘X’
  • Cybersal: @taotwit Yes I  like that Roger Martin characterisation. I have certainly come across a lot of ‘reliability-oriented’ managers.

A happily-silly series of Tweets about ‘You might be an enterprise-architect if…’:

  • Cybersal: @bmichelson You’re not really an enterprise architect if the whiteboard is still blank at the end of the meeting #entarch #posers
  • pallega: When Larry DeBoever hired METAs EA team, the 1st qualification to be in #entarch was to “give good whiteboard” – true story!

  • toddbiske: RT @EricStephens You might b an [EA] if you have used UML/SysML/ArchiMate to diagram/discuss issues w/your family. #entarch <– that’s scary <hmm… I’d say that’s more #itarch behaviour than #entarch, meself…
  • theopengroup: RT @EricStephens: You might be an enterprise architect if you hoard all the dry erase markers at the beginning of a meeting #entarch
