The Loose-Cannon Story

Who hasn’t encountered the IT professional who is known as the proverbial “loose-cannon”? Take, for example, an employee who could not focus on any one item for any length of time before her mind would wander off onto something else. This scenario even played out in the middle of conversations. Anyone conversing with her would continually have to pull the individual back to the original conversation and repeat questions that weren’t answered before the subject changed.

Her work was just as disorganized as her thought patterns. Plans or checklists were never compiled for work assignments and follow up documentation was a struggle to extract.  

This lack of organization and planning caused tasks to be lost through the cracks and mistakes to be made in implementation. Many times it was suggested that she slow down and take more time to think the process through, and document the process and plan. Unfortunately she was never able to focus her efforts in a productive way and she ended up quitting her job when she realized she was about to be canned.
