“There are risks and costs to action. But they are far less than the long range risks of comfortable inaction.”
John F. Kennedy.
I’m doing a renovation to my house currently and costs have been increasing because I’ve refined things along the way. I’ve compromised on some things along the way too. I’m not a builder. I don’t know what rot is likely to be under the veneer. I’m not a stylist. I don’t know what risks to plan for or how long things will take.
I could engage experienced advisors but I’m prepared to bear the change to get what we want on this project.
To learn, to try things, to make mistakes, to be creative.
Is your OSS project the same? Can you afford the same flexibility on your project?
Do you need someone who specialises in guiding companies through this process or do you have the luxury to learn, to try things, to make mistakes and to be creative too?
