Ludicrously Complex Projects⚑
Split out the project into separate buckets of work duties with leaders for each bucket:
- Strategy and Planning
Communicate and track project's progression through sharing a project timeline and use it as a single source of truth. Keep it updated to reflect reality.
Make Effective Decisions⚑
- Brainstorm and be thoughtful by taking into account any and all long and short term implications.
- Optimize for efficiency
- Organize and Communicate
Anticipate bottlenecks – Make a table or diagram that maps out who your team relies on, and who relies on your team.
Keep tabs on it – Assign one owner from each side who looks after each dependency. Make sure the dependency owners understand and communicate the impact of changes to all upstream and downstream teams.
