When Dell set up their big social media program a decade ago, I heard that the team involved estimated that it would take three months to get done.
Michael Dell gave them two weeks.
As it turns out, they got it done in two weeks in the end, no problem.
Like Parkinson’s Law states, “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion”.
Acting fast doesn’t mean rushing into things blindly.
Acting fast means not filling in the gaps in the process, with time.
