Strange attractors

The four key elements of modern enterprises are people, process, technology, and content.

Patrick Lambe has produced a fantastic diagram (p.15) which shows how many information-related disciplines (and many which people think are not related) can be placed on a visual diagram where the job's "attraction" to one of these poles is noted by how close it lies to that pole. (NB: Patrick uses the term "business" instead of "process".)

The critical take-away from the diagram is that all these professions should be talking to one another ... and we're not. If anything, we're more silo-ed away in our own little bunkers today than 10 years ago.
