@craigmaloney Running a team and having to present serious changes, it is not a good idea to dump everything on everyone at once. It helps predict response and reactions and prepare them.
I am not saying I sit down and draw a diagram.
Like with change management, some need to see where we are going and can not just use the next step; but if others do not get the next step and just where we want to go, they feel lost in the woods.
