Creating processes: How much is enough?
There’s a Goldilocks aspect to creating processes for teams. Create too many and they’re mired in busy work; don’t create enough and chaos ensues.
How much is just right?
As little as possible to provide order while keeping everyone moving.
You get to where you're going, but it's a white knuckle affair. Sometimes there's a wreck and projects get hurt.
Things are safe and predictable but move very slowly. You often find yourselves standing around for no reason.
A little slower than having none, but everyone gets to where they're going with no drama.
