Replying to LO17540 --

Dale Emery, in Performance Rating LO17540, used a great analogy with the
example of measuring the coast of Maine with different lengths of string.
I think that he made the point of measurement tools and approach varying
results very clear.

What Dale did, though, like most (of us) consultants is to avoid answering
the question:

How long IS the coast of Maine?

Isn't that why we are engaged in these conversations (with my tongue
firmly embedded in my cheek!)?

BTW, I'd give Dale's contribution an 8.5 with 5 bonus points

For the Fun of It!
