Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Porous is Good

In case you missed it, Hugh at GapingVoid posted a great summary on the power of blogs within an organization.

So how do you keep misalignment from happening?

The answer lies in "x", the membrane that separates A from B. The more porous the membrane, the easier it is for conversations between A and B, the internal and external, to happen. The easier for the conversations on both side of membrane "x" to adjust to the other, to become like the other.

Don't miss the entire post to get the full picture. Hugh even includes a helpful visual aid as well.
