Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.
Motivation make my day.
I have been asked many time for how do you convert legacy site to responsive site. There is no easy answer to that, however over the years I have gained experience about how to do it wisely.
First of all, we need to understand what is responsive and what do we expect to see or not see when render to the different screens or estates. In other words, what do you want to hide and what do you want to show. Visualize it and walk through it by paper prototype and not even that if possible just build quick prototype (abstract functionality) for understand behaviour and set for the feedback from actual users and refine it until wow factor seen.
Upon agreement then I look at all the elements on the page and we tried to bind regions and match existing functionality to the each regions. It is harder than the said but we have to do it that way only to avoid error or even better failures. Each region is like a view or possible view and without modifying its core functionality, I estimate it to bolt on new design by middle layer.
So how long do you think it would take?
Great question. It depends on how deep the rabbit hole goes. How tightly couple your design is and how well you can abstract those dependencies. All that counts. But for sure you need to be consistent with its development, and depend on complexity and usability. When I say how long, my understanding is when user able to use it live. It is tough to understand but it has to be like that way.
So if you think I have calibre to help you in your ongoing project or project that needs facelift and delivered without loosing its core. Ask me or just contact me and book appointment to discuss over a nice cup of tea. I will be delighted.
Recently I watched documentary on unwritten ground rules(www.ugrs.net) and it was pretty impressive.
As an employee, we are bound for our duties and such duties have been pass it on without challenging it and it became an unwritten ground rule. It was until now at least for me.
Now, after watched that 2 minutes movie, I realized that the key reason was missing from it and that is, what do I value most at my workplace, is it because ….
List goes on, but may be none of those implies that how can I make my company a better workplace?
However I always wondered, suppose if I have my own corporate company then how can I make that company an awesome place to work for and people absolutely adore it and value it, make it more successful and yet fun to work for?
I must admit here I need to define my own company’s purpose and core values first and then envision it. Every business is driven by 4Ps – People, Product, Places and Promotion.
To give the best products with great promotion and value to the people at their own places.
What do I value most?
What is it that drives it?
I always see employees as an assets. They are intellectual assets who can nurture the culture. I should hire those who are passionate about their job, love what exactly they do. And have a same vision and values for the company.
I should always ask myself – do my business (corporate) really care for them? As a company do I really able to accept those changes?
It is true that company can always hire anyone they want and fire them at the same time. But by doing that don’t you think it violates integrity.
As an employee we must know about company’s core values and we must share it and respect it to live. Being passionate, enthusiastic about company and its products, take pride and be part of it. Absolutely vital that they took a proud for working.
Company shouldn’t choose them, they should choose the company and with a great reason.
Recognition and rewards always leads retention. Loyalty comes with a great trust and faith.
Success of the company lies where its employees welfare and continuous growth with a significant challenges.
I learn one thing from unwritten ground rules and I would like to share it.
If a corporate seeking a changes then employees must be treated as a loyal customers because they are the reason for the existence of corporate success.

Once upon a time in a poor zoo of Africa, an African Lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kg of meat per day for many years.
One day when London Zoo Manager visited the zoo and requested the African Zoo management to shift the lion to the London Zoo, Lion thought its prayers were answered finally.
The Lion was so happy and started to wondering about the London Zoo and centrally Air conditioned environments and a goat or two every day. Humm… Happy days……
On its very first day after arrival to the London Zoo, the lion was offered a big bag, sealed very nicely for the breakfast. The Lion opened it quickly but he was shocked to see that it contained few bananas.
The lion thought that may be they cared too much for him and they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted from India.
But to his surprise, the next day the same thing happened.
On the third day again the same food bag of bananas was delivered.
The lion was so furious; it stopped the delivery boy and blasted at him “Don’t you know I am the LION… King Of The Jungle… What is wrong with your management?
What nonsense is this? Why are you delivering bananas to me?”
The delivery boy politely said, ‘Sir, I know you are the king of the jungle.
But… sir, you have been brought here on a monkey’s visa!!! ‘
Moral of the Story….
BETTER TO BE A LION IN YOUR OWN PLACE, THAN A MONKEY ELSEWHERE.
After few quick attempts and experiments with Kanban board, I am going to start using this Kanban implementation,
So what is 4D matrix of Things to do.
The idea behind 4D is simple – keep clutter out and gain more focus on get things done.
I have started putting my to do a list in the matrix but it is just for every fortnight or 2 weeks. So that I can start doing more rather just scared myself away from long list of To do. Every week I have 3 main priorities to carry out and everyday just three things to do, thus my list items are limited in numbers, each DO part can only has maximum of 6 tasks (which is 3 tasks (priority) per week), and rest of grids are either DELEGATE or DELETE and DECIDE(DIFFER). DECIDE is a column which you can think as important but not so urgent or less priority.
After that Next is a column holds tasks I am going to tackle in the current week, and if I was interrupted by any variables then it will be put ON HOLD, may be later either I can DECIDE, DELEGATE or DELETE. And when it needs to be done then just start DOING it and upon done it’s DONE. Here is the magic doing cell has only one and one task at any given time.
Now every evening or first thing in the morning I can update board and start doing more, by limiting my to do list and achievements I reward myself a treat or may be if too many things on hold for current week then push a bit and decide or delete quickly without demotivate myself or feeling grief about it.
Next four weeks I am going to monitor how things are going and measure my success by using task points, each task has an effort mark on it. Let’s say if things take less than an hour has 1 point and if more than 1 hour but less than 2 hours then it has 2 points and 4 points, 6 points, 8 points and 10 points maximum.
I am working 48 hours a week including travel. Achieving 10 points a week will be a good milestone however, I am not going to crazy on that. I would rather progress slowly and steady week by week.
