Recently asked our slack community what questions they had about change management. This one stuck out to me as a very common issue: “How do you effect change without authority?” That’s an excellent question with a not so easy answer. Buckle up, this is going to be a long read. I’ll start with – it […]

Where do projects fail?
I forgot about writing this part of the newsletter this week. I blanked on it. In the middle of the night, I woke up and remembered. Yes, I swore. So now, here I am writing, a minute from when Chris needs this content to push the newsletter out the door on time. It got me […]
