A recent post to nz-libs about Victoria University's change proposal, builds credibility for the organisation for it's open communication policy with colleagues in the wider community.
I believe communication and conversation about individual organisations needs to be out in the open. There's no sense in operating in a vacuum. People talk. It's a simple fact.
Communication, conversation, debate and discussion between organisations about practices and policies needs to be celebrated, not punished.
We're all in the same industry folks. Collaboration and sharing ideas (hence this vehicle of Sally's, - thank you Sally, it's a wonderful drive ;-) are of benefit to us all.
