Project Management by Committee

I am just catching up on Seth Godin’s blog – as usual his posts are short and poignant. This one struck a particular chord:

“Hi, we’re here to take your project to places you didn’t imagine.

With us on board, your project will now take three times as long.

It will cost five times as much.

And we will compromise the art and the vision out of it, we will make it reasonable and safe and boring.”

Great work is never reasonable, safe or boring. Thanks anyway.
