Come to blows with the straightforward, but hard questions.
- Who’s it for?
- What’s it for?
- How do we do it?
If you talk with the people in your organization people may not have the same answers.
If people don’t have the same answers, it can make decisions challenging.
Sometimes simple decisions lack the appropriate context.
It might make moving forward on tougher issues feel impossible.
Take a while to gain alignment.
Ask everyone to write down what they think the purpose of the project is, and then all at once reveal the answers in the room.
It’s valuable to spend time aligning and inevitably realigning.
It ensures meaningful progress is being made.
