Head-in-the-Sand Management

We’ve observed two types of project environments; one where people seem to have their head’s in the sand; they try to avoid looking into the future for fear they may find potential problems, and another type on fast projects where they design-in an “early warning system,” so they can quickly identify future failures while they have time to prevent or fix them.

This has been our experience on hundreds of FTTM (fast-time-to-market) projects around the world. This simple screencast tells the story of two “dots;” and it’s not that exaggerated from real life situations we’ve observed.
