So it’s been a little over two years since I started this blog and I’ve now published well over 100 posts. So many that I forget what I’ve actually written about!
If I’m looking for something particular in my, ahem, ‘back catalogue’ (which is often the case), then how do I go about finding it?
Well, by a few routes:
- I have tried to add links in each new post to relevant past posts…but this has become harder to achieve;
and if you scroll down the right hand side of the blog you will find:
- a search box…but you kind of need to know the name of what you are looking for (easier for me…but ‘mind games’ for you);
- the ‘tag cloud’…but, whilst this is good, it doesn’t show everything; and
- an archive list (by month published)…but this is to play a game of chronological ‘pot luck’.
You can see then that there’s a few ways to attempt to find things…but none of them are very good, let alone complete!
Therefore, in the spirit of improvement, I have added an index, structured around two key models:
- Study: “how the work works” (Seddon’s Check model); and
- Intervention: “how to change it” (Deming’s Theory of Profound Knowledge).
Each of these models is then broken down into categories within.
If you are interested in exploring around the complete set of posts published to date (whether in general, or for something in particular) then I hope you find it of use 🙂
Example: If you want to focus on, say ‘measurement’ then you can go to the set of posts that deal with this area
I’ve even tried to be clever and (through the help of WordPress help forums1 🙂 ) created model diagrams with selectable (i.e. ‘clickable’) regions within – as a self confessed technophobe I’ve surprised myself!…but of course it might not work for you!(?)
You will find the index in the top right of the blog:
…have an explore, ‘click around’ and see what you make of it.
Every time I publish a post I will add it to the relevant region of the index.
Feedback on how this index works out for you will be much appreciated…and any other suggestions for improvements are most welcome.
Oh yes…and just in case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve recently added two very worthy giants to my list: Jay Forrester and Donella Meadows.
Merry Christmas/ Happy New Year/ Good wishes whatever your particular (non)‘theist’ or ‘calendar’ variety is.
1. I used the following site to create the code for mapping regions of each model (as suggested to me by Timethief ): http://www.isdntek.com/tagbot/imap.htm
