How Do I Know If My Problem Is Sticky?
Simple answer: it looks like this.
Sticky problems are easy to find, but hard to solve.(Otherwise they wouldn’t be sticky,now would they?) Here’s a handy checklist.
|•||Does your problem require input from multiple departments/divisions to be solved?|
Has your problem had several attempts at solution “Oh we’ve tried to solve that 10 times before!”
|•||Does it affect problems or solutions elsewhere down the line – part of a domino effect?|
|•||Is it integral to your new product’s development?|
|•||If you don’t solve it, will it just cause more problems?|
