Exclusive: IBM’s “Do it Wrong Quickly” Challenge

By The Grok
October 10th, 2007

All you marketing perfectionists out there, raise your hands! When it comes to project management are you “doing it right,” “doing it wrong,” or “doing it quickly“?

(Okay, perfectionists, you can put your hands down. Nobody’s actually keeping tabs.)

If you answered anything but “doing it quickly,” it’s time to take the “Do it Wrong Quickly” Challenge. The good people at IBM have been kind enough to offer GrokDotCom‘s readers an exclusive on this fun interactive quiz they’ve developed. Yes, it’s fun — and it is challenging. Sure, we all want to do our best, but sometimes our best intentions get in the way of getting things done.

So, in the spirit of our buddy Mike Moran‘s new book (you guessed it) Do it Wrong Quickly, we’ll leave perfection for another blog post and just ask that you to take the quiz!

Oh, and don’t forget to share your results with the rest of the class…

  1. In true nature to its name, you can just click on any answer as fast as possible until you get it right.

    Our current office high is 210 by getting it wrong quickly.

    As far as being a useful quiz, it would benefit from penalizing incorrect answers by deducting points or time. Good questions though.

  2. Ron, I know that it might be a better game if I scored things in a more traditional way, but I guess I wanted to make a point. In real-life Internet marketing, you usually don’t get penalized for trying something that doesn’t work out–you just lose a little time. I believe that, on the Web, taking shots faster and faster is more important than slowly getting it right the first time. Thanks so much for posting about the game (and thanks to FutureNow for calling it to everyone’s attention).

  3. Trying to buy “Do It Wrong” from anywhere on this site is impossible!
