A team member shared this simple framework to guide decisions with experiments and larger projects:
- How does this affect our ambitious goals (e.g., grow sales, increase productivity, improves an existing system/process)?
- How much revenue will we gain?
- How much time?
- What resources will be required?
- Are there any existing systems that are affected or can be used?
We use this framework internally on a daily basis, as a reminder that projects like redesigning a footer sound fun but when you put it through something like the questions above and then compare it to other things like getting a new product ready to ship, then the decision becomes clear.
What framework do you use to keep focused on projects?
