Appropriate preparation saves time, reduces mistakes, and improves quality.
The three major areas of preparation are: 1) clearly defining the desired outcomes, 2) creating a detailed plan, and 3) gathering the required resources.
Having a clear vision for what you want to create is essential. Communicating it clearly with everyone on your team is critical.
Knowing the requirements of the project, job, and system allows you to better prepare. The required resources often include money, team, and physical materials.
Proper planning and preparation almost always improves performance. Engineering is great idea for every project that involves physical or software components.
Listening to the market is critical of any new product or service.
Training is often a key part of preparation. The people who are being called upon to do the job must have the skills and mindsets necessary to do the job.
