Your comment reminded me of a recent private vs. public discussion. After it got past the obligatory government is bloated, ponderous, inefficient, etc. it became clear many of us wished that the private sector behaved more like the government in several areas!? (We were talking about customer service.) Your editorial about inspections and job rotation just added to the list. :-)

Guys,

Everything has a cost. You have to weigh that cost against the benefit. Corruption is not the only reason that the government has bought $400 hammers (meaning when you add all of the inspections, audits, compliance certifications, etc., it gets expensive -- for a simple hammer).

My wife is a program manager for a military contractor and I have heard many, many times her wish that they could operate more like in the public sector.

Granted some things are better, but not that many, IMNSHO. Some of their processes that are meant to save money actually end up costing more.

Regards,
Joe

Joe, anything can be done to excess. The piece that interests me is about planning for constant change in people. We need to make it cookie-cutter to a degree, yet not expect our employees to be clones or robots. I think inspections/audits are a way to make sure that shared concepts and processes are being implemented, and it might take a day or two a year.

Your job ought to be well documented, ready for inspection, or more likely, ready for someone else in case you get hit by the proverbial bus.

There are definitely some military lessons (note military != government) to be learned in how we do our jobs. Having documentation, plans, preparations, and knowledge ready for the next person.

Inspecting code, the environment, and the servers should be a standard practice. It can help you stay on top of things. Just learn to be efficient at it and make sure that these inspections are not performed too much. Find that happy medium where it is beneficial and not too costly.
