#350 / Granularity

"Granularity" is a buzzword that is (or has been) popular in the Silicon Valley. At an early stage, the word appears to have referred to how various data were arranged and organized. A more "granular" arrangement made more information more easily accessible. Granularity was good.

The use of the word in this context was extrapolated to a business context, at least, that is my impression. That gave us a 2008 book called The Granularity of Growth, followed by a 2009 book, also focused on business, called Granularity.

Paying attention to details is important. On the other hand, there is another approach that is also worthy. There is a book for that one, too: Don't Sweat The Small Stuff.
