A Practice Pattern Model

Post by polymath » February 8th, 2011, 4:41 pm

A Practice Pattern Model patterns a scale of practices measuring inputs and outcomes.

A bad practice is one with dangerous and inefficient practices resulting in irrecoverable losses and task failure.
A poor practice is one with dangerous and/or inefficient practices resulting in acceptable task completion with limited irrecoverable losses.
A fair practice is one with safe though inefficient practices resulting in acceptable outcomes.
A best practice is one with safe and efficient practices resulting in optimum outcomes.

A Critical Path Model plans a task process for a best practice optimum outcome.
Spread the love of written word.

I wish my brain worked like this. Very orderly. Systematic. Like code. Well, I guess our brains do work like code, but there's a lot of faulty if/thens in there.

When you were in grade school, did kids call you 'Mike Penison'? Cause that'd be hilarious.
