Processes that are not the best

It would be nice if we could always follow the best process, but that is not always possible.

If you think that the best is rather less than the best, it will change the way you train on a daily basis.

In creating an IT service, a project is launched.

Gather members, calculate money, come up with ideas, research the market, set a schedule, motivate, summarize requirements, draw designs, code, build infrastructure, design the system, write programs, pour in data, test, fix bugs, and then put together a press release, Put together a press release, get it out to the media, and then users start using it.

It would be rare for it to be easy to write and go through this number of steps.

In addition, members have different skills, different ways of communicating, different areas of expertise, different experiences, different workloads, different environments they have lived in, different values they emphasize, different ages and genders, and different things they enjoy.

Needless to say, it is more normal to be discrete.

Then, imagine what the "not-so-best" process would look like, which should be the norm.

With a little thought, we can see that it is rather more difficult to do so.

After all, the number of branching patterns is enormous, and the thinking does not proceed from there.

But if you do, you will not be able to train because you will not be able to envision the not-so-best process itself.

It means that even if you want to develop the ability to deal with a not-so-best process in order to achieve the best process, you cannot envision the not-so-best process itself.

How should this dilemma be overcome?

One solution would be to minimize blurring by standardizing the selection of people's skills and experience in advance and applying common rules to the process in the first place.

However, I think the important training will be to share the sensitivity that there really is no best process, and the time it takes for the whole team to stop and kneel together until they are satisfied with the imperfections that rise up in front of them.
