Step 1 - Evaluate the Need

Does it fit with LC.tv culture?

Is it the next step toward a larger objective?

Is there buy-in from key stakeholders?

Step 3 - Identify Constraints

Here is where Innovation really can take place. Constraints don't hold you back, they unleash innovation and creativity. EX: Haiku, iambic pentameter.

The Triple Constraint

* These three are so inextricably linked that typically only 1 of these can be absolutely fixed. * Changes in one of these almost ALWAYS result in changes to the other 2. * If all 3 are set arbitrarily, the project is almost certain to be doomed. * one of the project manager’s greatest challenges is managing to this triple constraint.

Failure to communicate with all those who need to know about progress/expectations - silos.

Involving the wrong people - people without the right skillset

Failure to properly assess contraints

Failure to fully execute on a plan

The GAP - I have an idea, how do I make it happen? Creativity AFTER ideation

Failing to understand LC.tv Processes
