Limits are there for a reason!


The following policies and procedures may sound bureaucratic. Some may want to uproot such limits.

  • Casual wear is only on Fridays. No mini skirts or shorts are allowed.
  • The Project Manager must always own the Project Risk Register and Project Schedule.
  • The CEO must formally approve the business case for projects worth over $200,000.

However, it should be noted that limits are there for a reason. The limits bound our scope and energy within their boundaries.

New thinking continues to challenge existing limits. But with each unplanned broken limit, there are messed-up relationships.

So, as leaders, we must protect limits, refine limits, and make them scalable and future-proof.
