Welcome to another Monday Morning Meeting! It has been a few Mondays since our last visit together, but we're back at it with a collection of a few things we thought you might find as interesting as we have.
Seth suggests all proposals include a pre-mortem:
If you want us to take your new proposal seriously, consider including a pre-mortem. Include a detailed analysis of why your project might fail. Specific weak spots, individuals who need to come on board, assumptions that might not be true… If you've got a track record of successfully predicting specific points of failure before they happen, we're a lot more likely to trust your judgment next time.
