    formalized communication on the job


    Years ago I worked with a company that used an application named The Coordinator,
    by Action Technologies Inc. The package defined a protocol for communication,
    which included making specific requests for action, accepting or declining
    the requests, and declaring the requests complete.

    In my opinion, the package supported and worked well in the company's environment.
    It encouraged people to be specific and to respond. On the other hand, the
    formality of the protocol did not inspire non-request communication, such
    as "A note to say hi." or "Here's my idea. What do you think?"

    Here are some interesting references:
