On Acronyms... and making content readable.
On receiving the latest newsletter "Consistency And O3s" my immediate thought, what the heck is an O3? It wasn't until more than halfway through the article that "One On One" was spelled out and I was able to sort out what was being discussed. Made for a very inefficient way to get information from the newsletter as I had to first decipher O3 before I could make sense of the content.
Had the Title been "Consistency and One on Ones", the usage of O3 later in the content would have been much clearer. Or leave title as it was, but spell it out the first time. Define up front, then shorthand, not the other way around.
Final note on the O3 acronym itself, it's very non-intuitive, particularly if you refer to the meeting as a "One to One". "One on One" lends more of a competitive edge to the phrase. My colleagues and I usually use the shorthand 1:1 which is much more intuitive.
I'm seldom on the forums but couldn't let this one pass without a little unsolicited feedback.
