Discussion Topic 2:The concept of best practices is simple: Do not recreate the wheel.
For this week’s Discussion, please research and find an article relating to best practices that you find truly interesting. Find a company or situation that created a best practice that others follow, or find a best practice that was implemented and proved effective, efficient, and innovative.
Answer the following questions relating to the article and your own experience with best practices:
Please describe the background for the article you researched and explain why this particular best practice scenario appealed to you. What did you learn from the situation that you could apply to your own life?
Best practices are for not only our professional lives, but our personal lives as well. Please describe a situation in your life that needed some type of improvement and, after observing someone else in a similar situation handle things differently, how you decided to implement your own best practice. Is this best practice still effective, or have you improved it?
