A lot of time can be saved by getting the people who actually do the work in the room early on.
Usually, time spent talking about possible challenges and solutions is completely wasted because no one thought to ask the person who will do it.
- What do we need to do
- Who does it
- When does it need to be done
But don’t ask:
- How do we do it
- What happens if we do it like this
- Why can’t we do this
…until you’ve got the right person answering the questions.
