Sustainability is probably the most import aspect of being Pragmatic.

There is no point being Effective today if it compromises and damages your ability to be Effective tomorrow.

There is no point being Efficient today if it compromises and damages your ability to be Efficient tomorrow.

There is no point Thinking about today while ignoring tomorrow.

There is no point concentrating on Quality Time today if it compromises and damages your ability to be spend Quality Time tomorrow.

There is no point dealing with the fundamentals of today if it compromises and damages your ability to deal with the fundamentals of tomorrow.

When an Enterprise starts to adopt the principles and teachings of Pragmatic, it may very well be that they cannot pay too much attention to Effectiveness, Efficiency, Thinking, Quality Time and Fundamentals, and that’s fine. So long as it is recognised that the amount of time and resources we spend on these things should increase over time, where each time we make a change, we make it in the light of enabling the future rather than ignoring and thereby disabling the future.

Sustainability and thinking of the future is the main reason architects find justifying what they do so difficult - especially in an environment that is insatiably and obsessively calling for quick wins and the picking of low hanging fruit and absolutely and actively discourages anyone from thinking about the future.

Of course there are times, when Business expediency dictates that Sustainability (and indeed any of the other Pragmatic traits) should be ignored, but that should be an exception, not the rule.

 

Is sustainability ignored in your Enterprise as an exception or the rule?

If it’s ignore as a rule, what do you need to do to stop it?

How does your Enterprise plant the seeds of quick wins and low hanging fruit, rather than only trying to harvest them?
