Re: OT: Getting people to use tools
in thread OT: Getting people to use tools
- The initial assignment came from a manager. Since her departure, 2 subsequent managers have weighed in saying they want this.
- The tool gets the exact same results, and gives the option for more (install the build, give option to populate the system, option to run automatic build acceptance testing). And, instead of 30-40 steps, it's one step.
Worse, this isn't an isolated instance. I've created dozens of tools, large and small, and I get the same thing every time. I don't think it's the technology that's an issue. I think it's attitude and mindset, which are far more difficult to change. Honestly, this isn't so much a perl question as a social engineering question, and I am both frustrated and baffled.
