and that’s dangerous. I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want to say here. That means I haven’t said anything, because I’ve gotten stuck in the thinking part.
I’d like to talk a bit about what it’s like to manage large digital projects and platforms that are unlike what have come before. There are no guidelines, no roadmap, and no formal system that’s a perfect fit.
I’m planning to talk about the challenges, the joy, and the real work that it takes to work collaboratively with a team. Thinking through the implications of what seem on the surface to be small decisions that end up having large ripple effects. Talking about the struggle to identify your values and to enact them, and the mistakes made along the way.
I hope you’ll come with me. I can’t promise to be prolific, but I hope to use this space to create dialogue and to think through what it means to do this work.
