Another thing I did a lot of in startup mode was change my mind. It wasn’t that expensive and didn’t impact many people, so I changed courses a fair amount. This also became troublesome in scale-up mode. I started doing a bit more research and making final decisions. The expression I’d use was “we’re sailing the ship and once it’s out of the harbor, it’s not coming back.” When you sail the ship, you clarify tons of people’s work. The key to making “ship sailing” work is your team. If your team argues about a decision, the decision gets made, and the team continues arguing about it (and maybe undermines it), you are in trouble. The sign of a good team is that they can have healthy debate, but once a decision gets made whether they won the debate or not, they need to line up behind it. If you don’t have that feature in your team, it is hard to scale.
