What Meetings feel like for Engineers
My students and everyone in my office know me: I’m a HUGE fan of Dilbert. There is rarely a lecture for which I do not have a Dilbert cartoon which shows the daily life of an engineer in as few as 3 cartoons. Humor is a good way to reflect behavior and to have a laugh, so usually I tell every week a fun story to the class. I collect fun stories from students, from my family, my peers, or from my life as teacher, researcher and engineer.
And here I share my newest fun story (a video this time): An engineer as an ‘expert’ in a business/requirement meeting. The task is simple: create seven red lines. But the twist is that these lines must be perpendicular…
Guess who is the engineer in the video below?
I’m under the pain of sleep deprivation in preparation for a conference in the US I’m going to attend next week. But that video made my day (well night :-)).
Happy Experting :-)
PS: I have seen all aspects of that video in real meetings. I just had one this week ;-)
