Contingency Plans are more important than big data

Inspiring names


Wifey, the wife of our CEO Stan, sent me a text: 

"Gloria, Stan and I agreed that the names of the conference rooms need to be more inspiring-text me some suggestions; Stan wants this to be done on Monday morning, so put this on priority; WE are waiting for your suggestions. Wifey."

Wifey must know that I have no priority list. I am in HR, and handle texts all at once and one by one, in line with my core values of responsiveness and HR business partnership.

I had already prepared a contingency plan for changes like this, which I sent to Wifey, in a timely fashion.


  Stan's Conference Room: The Worldly American


  HR Conference Room:     The Vatican


  Sales Conference Room:  Ground Zero  


  R&D Conference Room:    English Only SVP


  Accounts Payable Room:   Greek Treasury 


  Ms Cynthia Axe's Room:    Chambre Defarge Room

(Hugh White from Diversity registered his objections to the name of HR conference room)
