As policies go this one is breathtakingly simple – DO NOT SEND EMAIL WITHIN THE ORGANIZATION. Read the news below.
Various comments on the news item are also interesting:
To talk about banning emails is talking about the wrong end of the problem -the effect and not looking at the causes.
There are many reasons for the deluge of emails within an organisation e.g.
-somebody has forgotten (reminder)
-somebody is late (chasing)
-bad quality (for re-doing)
-unwillingness to collaborate
-being continually in project mode (doing things somehow)
-Bad or broken processes.
-Bad project planning
There is no doubt that there are simply are too many emails out there. The the way to deal with the deluge is to fix and improve processes, train people etc.
