The problem is that this model was designed for an age when the majority of staff were engaged in repetitive industrial style work. Unfortunately the same model is being applied to call centre operators. Its not only social networking, social media, or even flatter organisations.

It’s a very widespread mental model, and it is premised on the notion that a searcher has a precise idea of what they want (search is fully intentional and there is a clear “target&# for the query) and that they know when they are satisfied. He hasn’t got any data behind this yet, but it’s a big step in the direction of a search model that might be sophisticated enough to map against real people doing real tasks.

This conference and the IIBA are major players in progressing the discipline of 'Business Analysis', something that I have been also teaching in over recent years. This is exacerbated by the fact that 90% of business analysis exercises are the front end to an IT implementation, so what ends up getting automated is far from a true reflection of a real business requirement.hence the copious number of IT failures and war stories that flood the IT press.

People are moving onto the next generation of presence (Social Presence) and looking at social networking as the new model (Facebook).
