By when?


There are a thousand things to do.

Assuming we put some time into the list and weed it down to a reasonable number, say nine hundred and some, there’s the small matter of prioritisation.

Which to attack first?

Some of the answer will involve availability of resources – which is management-speak for, “Do we have the cash and people?”

With a prioritised list and all the human and financial capital assigned, there’s one more question.

By when?

Without a date, there is no accountability. Without a date, it’s a list. Without a date, there is no commitment.

Skippy Strategy: Finish every meeting with a list of actions and this question of commitment.
