This happens too often:
Employee has an idea for a new initiative (e.g. feature, workshop, hackathon, event storming session, newsletter, offsite, recurring meeting).
Manager: “That’s great, we support initiatives, let’s do it!”
Initiative happens; people participate; success is declared: “Initiative happened, lots of people participated, it was a success!”
Was it, though?
It’s quite often that we, as the initiator of some new idea, are so excited we are blind to its uselessness.
