Mistake # 39: Don’t have anyone in charge of a major company effort!

It just ain’t gonna happen. A group that are my peers are launching a new product for the company. Without a timeline. Without a lead person. “It’s a team effort!” Oh, yeah? Well, you can’t always lead by consensus.


“Where’s the spec sheet?”

“ Oh, forgot about that.”

“Well, we’ll have problems anyway when we do a final load before launch.”

“Before lauch? Won’t that push the (non-existing) timeline back?”

“Yes, by a week.”


Really! Sometimes I just feel like the only way to get ahead and not deal with this kind of stuff is to win the lottery. I’m off to buy lottery tickets.
