The Right Question
Move the focus from projects to ongoing improvement. The right question is: How do I continually improve and adapt (in an environment of relentless change and competitive pressure)?
It is a journey. Need to continually adapt. Not a one-off effort.
projects by definition are transitory. they involve a one-off effort. A project team is created specifically for the project, then once the project has completed, the team is disbanded. there is no continuity, knowledge is list. (half baked investment) Ongoing focus is missing, And the ability t build on the initial result is lost...
best practice is continually delivery in discrete efforts. there are several ways to this:
Need the 5 x 5 Framework for Context.
(where stalled) need 2nd effort, get things going again. etc
