Title: Software usability
Context: If pictures are worth a thousand words then infographics have to be worth a couple gazillion at least.
Synopsis: You can talk about the benefits of software usability until you are blue in the face, but so what? Words are cheap. Well, no longer will you be forced to engage in non-infographic backed discourse on the necessity and efficacy of software usability. Finally an infographic that is the indisputable defense of your argument you have been waiting for! Everyone believes a good infographic. How can you not? What with its bright colors, bite-sized factoids, and artfully arranged numbers that may or may not be true. You know that software usability has truly arrived when it warrants its own infographic. And today, we have arrived my friends???
Best Bit: “Users are almost ten-times more likely to encounter a usability problem in a business application than a website.”
Title: Infographic: Watch A Company???s Management Team Mutate Over 4 Years
Context: We’ve all most likely been re-orged at least once in our life. Did I say once? Sorry, I meant eleventy billion times???
Synopsis: Large, hulking, ossified corporate structures are impossibly inflexible. Stagnant. Inert. Lifeless. Except that they are not. At all. Almost counterintuitively, these corporate behemoths tend to behave like living organisms in reality, constantly changing, growing and repairing itself as new challenges are faced, as it grows and indeed, as it dies. It is hard to understand the symbiosis that allows such complex organisms to function on a day to day basis and while institutional prejudice projects a plodding and structured pyramid, it can actually be incredibly dynamic and organic, if not more than a little chaotic. So the next time you hear the dreaded news that you are about to be re-orged ??? again ??? don’t weep over the systemic uncertainty, instead embrace the anatomical metamorphosis as part of the healing necessary to keep any living entity robust.
Best Bit: The animation itself. Watch at full screen as the creator recommends.
