🤔 When do you address a setback? Do you wait until it happens and schedule a post-mortem and scramble to figure out a solution?
What if you addressed the setback BEFORE it happens?
Yes, you heard right.
✅ Begin each new project with a 'premortem'.
✅ Imagine the "What if" scenarios of things that could go wrong.
✅ Design out the potential disaster scenarios.
Make this practice a habit in your organization and build resilience - the capacity to recover quickly from shocks and disruptions.
