When was the last time someone asked for your opinion at work? I don’t mean “where should we go for lunch” type of question. I mean the type where someone really wants to know what you think about something. Being a talkative and opinionated sort, whenever someone asks me a question I’m perfectly happy answering them. Most of the time when this question is posed to me it’s about projects but sometimes the bosses want to know my opinion so I tell them the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. And you know what? When they listen to what I’ve got to say then I stand a bit taller – they may not agree with what I’ve got to say every time but the fact that they asked my opinion and listened to what I had to say feels pretty good.
Chad Jackson, from engineering.com is running a survey on measuring the value of simulation. As a vendor, I’ve stood on my soap box plenty of time extoling the virtues of simulation. From my conversations with the engineer-at-large I know some of you agree and some disagree. That’s all good – a discussion on all subjects is not only healthy but should be encouraged. So here’s your chance to tell the world what you really think. To participate in this short survey, please follow this link . And in case you’re worried, this is an anonymous survey and takes only a couple of minutes to complete so I really hope that you participate.
Until next time,
