Clockwise Dammit

index | Index

Clockwise Dammit - Coined by psychologist Melville Thomas, this refers to a decision made when protracted discussion of all available options is unneccessary or deemed cumbersome, and when the decision-maker has determined that the results of the decision are not likely to present an unreasonable burden to any stakeholder group. Usage example: "Which set of data definitions should we load into the repository first? Let's just invoke the Clockwise Dammit Rule and go with Name & Address fields."
