The edge


Before we kick off the project, before we start heading for Point A on the horizon, before we get deep in the weeds, let’s start with first principles.

Like, is Point A where we’re actually heading? It may be the obvious idea, or the first idea, or the one promoted by the biggest job title or ego in the room … but is it the one?

Like, how will we work together? We have many talents with much experience and a wide array of working styles and preferences … what’s our model for how that’s going to work?

Like, how will we measure success? Is it exclusively about progress towards a stated goal or do we also care about accountability and team working?

Like, is this a team thing or a sum of the parts thing?

Skippy strategy:  Before you jump right in, stand on the edge for a minute and think.
