Luke 14:28 - For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?
A system of measurement in design is important. Measurement helps you look at where you are starting. It gives you an evaluation of what’s going on around you and it determines what you can build off of the foundation that you currently have. Only then can you determine how big and tall you can grow.
H. James Harrington, former engineer, IBM executive, and performance improvement pioneer, says, “Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it if you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.” - 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth pg. 112 2012 paperback.
What strategy can you implement that will help you measure where you are and help you understand what to improve?
