A buddy wanted a change to happen.
There was resistance
(there always is).
The executive team said it wouldn’t work.
They didn’t want to allocate manpower to it.
So my buddy did it on her own time.
She didn’t do all of it.
It was too big of a project.
It would cost her
too much time and money.
What she did was
that part of the project
the powers to be
thought would fail.
The first try did fail.
So did the second.
She tweaked after each attempt.
Finally she had it consistently working.
THEN she presented it
to the executive team.
She got buy in for the entire project
and the rest is company history.
If your company is failure unfriendly,
if you can,
test high risk parts of your project
on your own time.
