What If Your Issues List Isn't Working?

Written by Mike Kotsis on October 9, 2017

Some time ago, a client of mine had a ridiculously long Issues List that was getting out of control. They never seemed to be making progress on resolving their issues - in fact, their issues seemed to be exploding!

I was perfectly comfortable “flying by the seat of my pants” without a system or procedure.
