We need to choose the right balance when guiding the work for our team.
Some elements of our work should be considered sacrosanct. These practices actually become more important as the pressure rises, even though they are often the first to be dropped on most projects.
Other elements can be considered more flexible. These are potentially valuable, given appropriate specific situations. It is always useful to build the capacity into the team to be able to leverage these optional skills, in case the situation arises.
In all cases, it is best that the team has a common understanding of which approaches are the most appropriate, and what the current situation is on the project. In this way, they will have the tools to make the best decisions under the circumstances.
Tactical decisions can support strategic goals only if they are intrinsically linked.
