On Being ‘Annoying’

by | Jul 24, 2020 | ICT4D |


There are countless reasons to share data. Here’s a few:

  1. End of a project
  2. Deduplication of participants
  3. Deduplication of processes
  4. Case referrals
  5. Case management
  6. Sale of assets
  7. Coordination

There are countless more. Understanding the reason changes the conversation. Changes the data to be shared and what is and isn’t an appropriate methodology.

Seems quite basic. And yet it is shockingly rarely worked through. The working assumption of data sharing being a good turns any questioning of it into an annoyance.

Purpose matters. And until it’s clear, keep being ‘annoying.’
