Knowing scope


How big is it?

Not exactly. Not dimensions. No absolutes.

But an indication … are you measuring in inches or yards?

How big is the project? Should we raise thousands or millions? Two people or seventy-two? How tall, how fast, how much, how many? Company-wide or departmental? Just in the planning phase or all the way through? The entire system or thinking in phases?

The scope.

“Only cabbages? Ok then. Got it. I’m with you.”

The first question, when everyone’s sat down and after the chit chat: what are we talking about?

Skippy Strategy: Make sure everyone’s on the same page AND they know how big it is.
