If everyone is not on the page with what the end goal is, then when it’s time to celebrate the delivery of the end goal not everyone will be happy.
If the goal is taking considerably longer than originally thought, it’s important for you to ensure that everyone is still on the same page as to what the end goal is and what the team is working towards.
Workloads and priorities shift and it’s easy for anyone to get tunnel vision into what they are doing and lose sight of what they were originally trying to accomplish until it’s too late.
We laugh and make jokes about signs posted about our end goals because “of course, duh” – but in the end, this keeps everyone working towards the same finality.
And when the celebration is had, it’s a great one.
