Global Citizen here.

My life over the last few weeks has been pretty hectic. Starting a new experiment. Articulating a new experiment. Configuring the variables. Getting a flux capacitor. I mean the list goes on and on.

Today I was forwarded an article about a man who outsourced his own job to China. I do not want to spark a controversy here, but I say good on you brother. Conceptually, I agree with you. The execution was poor. But that’s a different conversation for a different time.

I thought about execution. This guy actually traded one problem for a different one. The job of the indian and the job of the chief are both difficult. The indian needs time, skill, and resources to do their job. The chief needs to know how much time, skill, and resources are needed to do the job. How does this work?


What needs to be communicated?

Status + Estimates

But it’s a balancing act, but done well, could end you up in Cirque Du Soleil.

I wonder if they are good project managers?

I wonder if they are good project managers?

Factors that should be considered as part of the balancing act:

  1. How often does status need to be communicated
  2. How time-consuming is the status reporting process
  3. How does one increase the confidence in estimates without delaying the overall project for the creation of these estimates.

Global Citizen Experiment v2 (GCEv2) will require careful attention to maintaining this balance – as there will be multiple simultaneous work streams to this project. More on this later.

Global Citizen. Out.
