Hard Choices: A TED talk by Ruth Chang

One of my most common warnings to project teams is, “The most expensive part of any project is indecision.” I watched this TED talk by Ruth Chang yesterday, and I’ve been thinking about it ever since. Her point of view: Hard choices are those¬†where neither alternative is plainly better than the other. It seems simple enough, but for a project¬†team facing a number of choices in a short period of time, it can be a critical insight. Highly recommended.
