I am currently working on a new wiki page for the Five Why’s (or 5 Why’s) technique and came across this image that I liked so much I just had to share. I have no idea who created it, but it apparently was posted to a “Disqus” comment thread somewhere.
I hope you enjoy this bit of humor as much as I did.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you really should watch the YouTube video below. It’s based on a Russian story (link to the original in the YouTube info section) and shows the occasional absurdity that goes along with being a Business Analyst, a Systems Engineer, or any other “expert” role that runs head-first into a business need that just doesn’t make sense. It’s hysterical and sometimes so true it’s painful. 🙂 It had several of my co-workers laughing out loud.
I originally came across this on the fantastic Rands in Repose blog and thought it was worth re-sharing. If you are not reading that blog, you really should be. There is a link on the “Links” page. 🙂
