You have a question. You need an answer as soon as possible so your downtime is minimal. Where are you going to get your answer?
You could Google it. You’ll get millions—if not tens of millions—of results, and you’ll get them fast. Realistically, though, you’ll only sift through the first 30 or so that are on the first three pages of results. It takes time and it’s sometimes difficult to know if you’re getting good information from a reputable source. Google makes it easy to find and retrieve information, you just don’t know what’s good and what’s junk.
And, of course, some answers aren’t on Google. Like the type of information that’s in the employee handbook. For that, you could turn to the intranet. OK, you can stop laughing now. We know you can’t find anything on your intranet—no one can. Pretty much every corporate intranet, while built with the very best of intentions, is difficult to use. It works great as a repository for all your company information, it just isn’t easy to find and retrieve the answer to a specific question.
Of course, you could try to hunt down someone to answer your question, but that can take time—and take you off task. Or you could just make it up and hope you get it right.
