Our VP was talking to our extended teams a few months back and he said something that stuck with me about how he intends to promote a unified strategy for the team. It was simple and elegant and applies to most any project you might be involved in:

  1. Clearly define a strategy so that you know what you are doing and why you are doing it.
  2. Create simple and unambiguous measurements for success.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until it is second nature to everyone.
