Quality or delivery

Success has just as much to do with communication as it does with talent.

Knowing who is doing what, in which order, while the project is in motion, is the key to achieving an outcome on time.

Talent, skill and hard work are known factors that impact quality.

Less stated, however, is the need to coordinate, communicate and plan. 

Without these 3 things no one will ever see the finished product, which is a huge waste of effort. 

Talent + skill + hard work = quality of product. 

Coordination + communication + planning = delivery of product. 

Asking the right person

 

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.

Ask yourself:

  • 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.
