Great question! via Roman
I think “enterprise projects” should behave more like a startup!
By behaving like a startup I mean:
- Reduce risk and uncertainties
- Validate hypotheses and learn
- Prototype and get user feedback early
- Find paying customers: That means in an enterprise –> deliver usable features that people ❤ (love)
Most of the big projects do these things in some sort.
What they don’t do usually is:
“Hey this is not what the user wants, maybe we change something”
- Kill it
“We invested 10 million in this, let’s add 1 more million then we are ready” (The sunk cost fallacy)
“95% of startups fail”
Ok…. In my experience in an enterprise context, people tend to ride the dead horse too long.
