Jan 03, 2004 10:22 pm "Bad and good" vs. "different"
Eric Sohn

Althea's post about front and backloaders highlights an assumption a lot of us make about people, situations, etc. - that one side is necessarily "better" than another.

How does an assumption like that color how we deal with the person or situation?

What would happen if, instead of being less than pleased, we recognized that the different person or situation required a different strategy?

For example, how might you get past the perceived "problem" of working with a backloader? Let's hear your real-world examples, please!

For example, could you manage the backloader more effectively by creating multiple intermediate subdeliverables and milestones, so he or she couldn't delay too much? Or, what would happen if you had a discussion with the backloader about the effect that his or her different work style has on the team?

Oh, I've said too much... your turn!
