Looks like your typical, run of the mill parking sign designed to protect precious slots for diners at Andy’s Deli, a popular spot on the NW side.
Perfectly normal, and yet…
35 minute parking?
I’ve seen 10, 15, 30, 45… but 35?
I get the feeling there is a committee at work here.
And that they thought very hard about this sign.
Parking is a critical retail element that can make or break a business, so I’m glad they thought about it.
Creativity is messy when it comes to collaborative projects. There are committees, layers of approval, regulations, stakeholders. Run well with inspiration collaboration can take us beyond ourselves, creating something no single individual could have come up with alone. Run poorly and, well, you’ve probably already run into that so no need to go into it here. Leading even the simplest of ideas through an organization can be a challenge for even the most talented program manager.
Now, I have nothing against 35 minute parking. It might be a brilliant marketing move.
“A half hour lunch without the rush.”
I’m not in a position to judge. Wish I could have been in the meeting though.
What do you do to ensure ideas thrive instead of die in committee?
