すべての会社で当てはまる汎用的なフレームなどない!と思っているのが経営者
— 

なぜ経営者の前でカタカナ(コンサル・ジャーゴン)や、フレームワークを振り回すべきではないか、について説明した、A先輩の言葉。

「フレームやカタカナ言葉を多用するのは、私はあなたより専門家だ!
私の方が正しい!と言っているのと同じ。経営者はそういうスタンスで来られること自体が嫌い」とも言っていた。

Framework
  • Framework
  • The Story So Far
  • What You Don't See

I still think on you, the place, the time
And all the solitude
There’s nothing I hate more
Than pushing you away with my fucked up attitude
I’ve been counting paces
Since the last time we touched faces
It’s a lot like trading spaces
Where I’m the dormant one and you’re away

How’d this happen?
Found your way in
So distracting
Splitting me in half again

Can’t ever sever the ties I made
The knots are strong
The framework’s laid
No matter how many things I save
The tangible will always be what I crave
But I’ve been resting cases
And writing just to erase this
It used to just seem so basic
When I knew every single word to say

Thought I’d burn the seams if they frayed
Thought I’d prove the point that I made
However long you’re gone I will wait
I will wait

Common is one of the judges on the furniture design and build show Framework. The other judges are furniture designers and he’s in there representing the voice of the consumer. I have a lot of experience as a judge of reality show judges. It’s a specific skill and one I care a lot about. Something I love about Common as a reality show judge is that he creates contexts to consider the designs in.

Like ok, FOR EXAMPLE, standard reality show challenge, you have to make furniture primarily out of one of these random items we’ve assigned you!! 

regarding the chair design the person assigned tennis balls came up with,

Common: “if I come to you and say that hey I’ve got a friend who’s a good tennis player I want to give them a gift and I want you to use tennis balls you’ve gotta think of something beyond this. Come on, man.

and regarding the truly awful chandelier the person assigned forks made,

Common: “If I walked in a restaurant and they’ve got that chandelier hanging, I think I’d walk out.”

Like in order to fully consider them as the voice of the consumer he creates a story that isn’t just because they had to for a reality show.  WHY would there be a chair made of tennis balls, probably someone wanted it as a gift for their tennis player friend. WHERE would this chandelier of forks be, probably a restaurant. 

I genuinely appreciate this so much.
