Development Strategy

1. Define your Goal

Side Bar

"The best predictor of a virtual team's success is the clarity of it's purpose."

Jessica Lipnack,
Virtual Teams

Side Bar

Most vision or goal statements provide a picture of an achievable and highly desired end product. It also provides an anchor for the rest of the project. At any time, team members can take a look at what they're doing and ask if it is helping them achieve their goal. If it isn't, they need to take a step back and reevaluate what they're doing or look for another course of action.

But, a goal statement by itself doesn't make for much of a project. It's just the beginning, like those maps with arrows pointing to "You are here."

Now you have to determine the steps, or create a development strategy, to get from "here" to the successful completion of your project.
