Some say the current QWERTY keyboard is one of the slowest working keyboards in existence. It was created for typewriters to slow people down so the little arms that typed the letter would not get stuck together. Yet, we still use the QWERTY keyboard in almost everything we type. Conversely, Captain James Lancaster unintentionally discovered that lemon juice reduced the risk of scurvy on Naval ships and it took 111 years before it became a prerequisite in the British Navy. The point is this…some really bad ideas get implemented in organizations and some really good ideas don’t…most of the time it has to do with the way those initiatives are implemented.
