Excessive Planning

Thought Provoking

Nice essay on the problem of excessive planning and the importance of flexibility in project management.

Firstly, a lot of planning is just procrastination in disguise. Talking about, and writing down, how you’re going to change something about the world is much easier than going out and actually doing it.

Writing down a plan to say land group of people on Mars is easy. Actually doing that would be mind-bogglingly hard.
