Activity, Deliverable or Outcome?

Activity, Deliverable or Outcome?

  • Comments 1

I have come to the conclusion people are either:

  1. - activity focused
  2. - delivery focused
  3. - outcome focused

The first lot just does stuff.  Their calendar is always full, meetings are double or triple booked.  When asked what on earth they are doing you are most likely to get a meeting request for an explanation.  Hyperactivity is confounded with productivity.

The second lot doesn't talk as much as the first, but they create a lot of stuff.  Reports, documents, you name it they create it.  It's not necessarily useful, but perhaps they are getting paid by the page or weight of their deliverables.

Last but not least, some folks focus on outcomes.  This - either near-extinct or still evolving - species spends time defining some outcome before planning any activity, let alone deliverables.  How refreshing - I want more of them!
