1. I am a big believer in the importance of being intentional and having a well thought out plan. This is especially important when you are rolling out a digital workflow. Go back to the old adage of ‘plan your work and work your plan’.
2. The next level of intentionality is taking the time to have honest self-reflection on what is working and what is not working in your process. Transparency is huge. Not just with yourself but with those on your team, your partners, and others in the industry. Only through honest transparency can you have better collaboration that everyone talks about. This can even help to reduce the costs of projects.
3. Finally, do not overthink and therefore over-complicate your processes. Keep it simple, in order, for people to actually implement.
Here are three words to remember – Intentionality. Transparency. Simplicity.
