On Internal Mapping (1)

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what does it look like when we consolidate a thousand logs? In many organisations, there are many disparate data sets acting as pieces of the organisation's puzzle. An excellent analogy to the approach - you may have an idea of the whole picture (it's on the box) but you don't really appreciate it until you start looking at the pieces. In this each dataset is an additional piece, by taking each piece, mining the relevant parts and how they relate to the whole picture, the organisation gains incremental understanding of not only the value held by the dataset, but where it fits in the greater picture.

Uncovering Possible

This is the 52nd Tuesday post, closing in on a year of writing. Reflection is standard practice for such a marker, and the term is uncovery. Why this term? So many bits of life are mislabelled; attributed to discovery as something new (or at least new to us). We often look to explore the edges of the map, thinking newness is found in the fog on the horizon. Clausewitz was half right. We are often wrong.
