Right First Time

Imagine if the first wall you ever built had to form an integral part of your dream home, or if the first time you ever drew a picture it had to hang in the Louvre? Or if the first cake you ever baked had to be for your daughters wedding?

That’s clearly unreasonable.

So why does it seem reasonable that the first iteration of a new system you build should be the one that your business depends upon?

That’s why we prototype. That’s why we iterate. That’s why we beta. Don’t rob yourself, and your organisation, of the wisdom you’re owed from those lessons.
