Large projects can be a significant drain on organizational resources. Too often, these projects get put on back burner, or are done off “the side” of someone’s desk who is already overburdened with their existing job description. As a result, they never get done, or they take too long to complete.

This is ideally used for a focused examination of a specific issue within your organization or business
