Doug Franks is a Professional Engineer at the Georgia DOT and one of my closest friends. He was helping me think about how to scale a project from a large implementation to a smaller environment. We were discussing the intensity of the larger implementation – and how that level of intensity fades when the size and complexity is reduced.
During that conversation, he made an important observation: “The opposite of intensity cannot be complacency.” In other words, those smaller and less complex projects still need a high degree of intentionality. When we are complacent, our projects are at risk.
Can you execute smaller projects without allowing complacency to enter your approach?
Thanks for listening!
