I’ve read advice saying
to gather all the members of a project launch team
together from day one. 
This supposedly promotes ownership of the project. 
I disagree. 
It promotes frustration. 

I recently joined a group project. 
My role was to help implement. 
I was a doer. 

This was the first day of the project so
the group was still at the conceptual part. 
They were thinking. 

(Because they wanted this product to be “unique”,
they weren’t interested in my input.) 

Three weeks later,
I’m still waiting for the go-ahead decision. 

Am I frustrated? 
Yes. 
Am I ready to walk away? 
Yes. 

Bring people onboard
when you need them or their insights,
not before.
