Let’s solve everything with Technology #6
IT professionals, especially in schools, are frequently asked to address problems that are not technical in nature, but that management have decided are best handled with a technical solution.
Our problem today may at first seem similar to #4, but it has a subtle difference…
“Can we change everybody’s default font in Word to Arial? We need to keep communications from the school looking consistent.”
This might look like the problem here is really that you need to just tell people that they must use the correct font, but that’s not the real problem here. The real problem is that the person who asked me to do this is a control freak. This is unfortunately a problem that is only exacerbated by technology. I lied and told him it wasn’t possible.
