Data... the Hard & Soft of It

Ed Week

A female staff member...let me say that again...a female staff member once said to me that a man's brain is like a waffle and a woman's brain is like a pancake.

Recently, I read Reframing Organizations by Bolman and Deal. They wrote about the importance of taking situations and putting them in frames. In their book they divide situations into four frames, which are Political, Human Resource, Symbolic and Structural.
