We have long advocated the importance of action over analysis in both our knowledge strategy and community of practice work and I blogged about the ‘ready, aim, aim, aim‘ phenomenon in 2005. Maybe it is because I am conscious of this issue, but in the past few months I have noticed many voices emphasizing the ‘do something’ theme, starting at the AIM Annual Convention in Sydney in September.
Here are some of the comments/quotes I have heard recently on this theme. I have heard all of them before, they just seem to be more prevalent recently.
Does anyone know of other similar quotes. More interestingly, have others noticed a trend toward action/experimentation over lengthy analysis in recent times?
