Pointe of the Week 7.12.19


July 12, 2019

Success is determined in the first 20% of a project's lifecycle.

We have been using an assessment model at FPG since 2008 to determine key areas of focus in achieving outcomes for our clients. The model has 4 steps: 1) Belief; 2) Intent; 3) Design; 4) Change. Too often, companies jump to implementation without doing the hard, up front work of Belief...why are we doing it and are all of the people it will affect aligned with the beliefs? Intent - what is the outcome we desire? What will it look like when completed (think Charter). Most failing projects we've helped correct have a root cause in these two areas. Go slow first so you can go fast later.
