Fitting clearly


What worked yesterday, may not work today. What should have worked yesterday, maybe didn’t and maybe won’t tomorrow.

Without you noticing, it’s likely things don’t work quite how you imagine in your team. People are filling in for other who can’t or won’t do the work. The job description you hired for, never really made sense. The job that did make sense, is bending out of shape as the world turn around it.

One in a while, maybe today, review the team you have and the shape it describes. Are all the pieces aligned? Does everyone know what their contribution is? Do you? The difference may be a tweak here and a clarification there, or it could be structural. Maybe you’ll define a missing link, maybe you’ll eliminate an unnecessary one. And then of course, you need to do something about it.

Skippy strategy: A clear team, fitting clearly.
