Minimal control over technology use is a mantra I’ve been chanting into the blogosphere for a while now. The great majority of people know how to behave, want to do their jobs well, and are predisposed to be helpful to their colleagues. If you believe what’s in your mission statement, empower your people (who are, as you say, your most important resource) with the new digital tools without lecturing them too much about how to use them appropriately. When I see 20-page social media policy documents, I always think they could be reduced to one sentence: “We’d really prefer that you not use social media.”

If we know to choice not just the best but the also the most appropriate for our needs and have control over it, surely it will give us bountiful results!

Great article Emerald, I certainly agree with this lines: exercise tight control over technology choice, and as little as possible over technology use. It is really discipline most especially in our choice and how to use it.
