How to Smack Down Political Bullshit in Prioritization Meetings

Hey Dominic, great question. I mentioned above the importance of making sure you have the right representatives in the room to have an objective discussion. This means it’s important to have someone who can speak to the effort required in a concrete way. Alternates could be number of tasks or amount of time required to complete the task, as long as it’s a reasonably educated estimate. If you don’t have anyone in the room who can make that call, table the meeting until you do, go have some coffee. It’s not worth discussing if you don’t have that information, you’ll just get into theoretical debates and politics. :)
