Which Movie, Actor, Gown is the Best?
Even if you didn't catch any of the Oscars
last night, you are undoubtedly aware that one movie was named the best, along with one actor, one costume designer, and so on in several other categories. Only ONE of each was named "the best," and recognized with an Oscar in 2010. A recent NPR story
points out that what has been honored as the "best" may not be. For example, the musical Oliver! won best picture in 1968 over 2001: A Space Odyssey, although many disagree.
How about who was "best and worst dressed" at the show? One of many online polls
has named one person for each. Is it possible to have a single definition for "best or worst dressed"? Just as men and women frequently define a "good movie" differently, the meaning of "the best" depends on the context.
How different are the organizations we are all a part of? Have you ever been asked to find the best solution to a problem? Is this possible without knowing use, cost, impacts and a host of other criteria? How often are we able to communicate this criteria to others? How are we able to create better solutions as we focus on being "the best" individually without consideration for what we contribute together. InThinking
