OK, here is the biggest WTF site I have found, outside some that Rex Dixon at Technically Speaking has found.
CogMap.com… here is a site where you go and build an organizational chart of your organization. It reports to be for people who need to keep track of who is working in their department and who they all report to….
Don’t believe me, here is what they say..
“What is CogMap?
CogMap is the Wikipedia of organization charts. We are an organization chart wiki! This means that it is a collection of organization charts online that anyone can edit, add to, and help maintain.
CogMap is a tool for sales people, entrepreneurs, and recruiters to understand organizations and keep information up to date. If you are like us, you had some of these things happen to you:
· Worked at a company without a published organization chart and had no idea who worked for anyone else
· Tried to figure out who to call at a company and come up empty
· Bought a list of people to call and had all the information be wrong
· Met people that all had different titles and been unable to tell who was the decision-maker in the room!”
CogMap is from the No Inc, Company, a web creation group that is out of Maryland…and from this remark made on the CogMap site:
We are some passionate people with an interesting idea trying to make our way in the big world. Help us out!”
Looks like there might be a few people here thinking they may make a bundle on this site and be wearing Open Toe Sandals before long…or Not!
Now, Mr Business Golf says, that if you do not know who you are reporting to when you go to work for someone then you need more than a chart…I would say that you need a new JOB.
Good site with good intentions and probably has a purpose and a niche somewhere…I am sure No Inc will figure it out.
