Organisational psychology

I had a new understanding in my thesis final chapter related to the importance of psychology in organisations.  I’m not really sure what psychology is, given that it seems to be a way of working with philosophical concepts in a business environment.  My training is more along the lines of semiotics and decoding philosophy.

At least I can see my way clear to making up two full days of writing a week, with a focus on finishing the thesis by the end of this month.  Zina messaged me on fb about coffee with the girls.  They are my first thesis-support coffee group, so that would be perfect.  I love catching up over coffee!!

Coffee groups are the best type of organisation, from my point of view.  Flexible, adaptable, full of ideas and news, occasional and able to be copied with different personnel.  Perfect!

Meanwhile, I have uploaded a content management system to the server for my website, after hours and hours of keeping the web page open while it installed.  The instructional information is clear and easy to find and it seems very user-friendly. 

There is a link between types of organisation and website domain names, which is relevant to my role as webmaster for a sporting officials organisation.  I am trying to find out the details of audit requirements and having a registered incorporated entity as the governance structure.  Personally, I prefer not-for profit with ability to receive tax-deductible donations.

It is not easy to find out about the officials organisation, as there are changes in the State and national registration systems.  It seems there is more of a centralised system now.  Oh well, it gives me something to do in between writing.  Optimising the search engines on the government web site is obviously not a priority in the business registration area.

Writing in general

It is often said the to improve as a writer, the best thing is to write a lot.

Even though I am mainly writing my thesis and preparing papers for publication, there are other types of writing that can help me to writie well.

When it comes to talking to people, listening and teaching, there is no doubt that writing and research all help to sharpen my message.

Often, it is just a scrap of paper and a list of notes that I use to keep track of things when they occur to me.  This can be hard to use later, as the pieces of paper manage to be used as bookmarks or are soon lost in amongst other things.
