Big Picture First, Details Later

There are two ways to approach something important. Either start with a lot of details and get everyone overwhelmed or agree on the big picture first and let details be worked out later.

I have found in many business deals, when we focus on agreeing on the big picture, the rest becomes easier as you narrow down the key areas of contention.

When you start with details you can end up all over the map spending time on important details as well as unimportant details, so that by the time you come to the crux you are exhausted.

  1. I totally agree with this approach. We need to have a “buy In” for the Big Picture first. The mechanics of “How to” can be worked out later. Thanks
