Hi all this isn’t specifically a Fibery question but a broader project management question. Would also love to hear any Fibery team members answer this question.
Something that I repeatedly bump up against with projects/goals is dealing with unknowns. Software is full of them.
Yes you can always use tried and true tech/software/libraries but the moment you need to do something unfamiliar it quickly gets complicated. You have a rough idea for the result you want but you don’t actually know how to get there.
For a more realistic example of this scenario, let’s say that your goal is Go to the moon (this goal is a metaphor for any big goal you may have but no idea/experience on how to achieve it). Where do you start with this???
There’s a good chance most of your ideas won’t work, but there’s a chance that an idea leads to another idea. We tried strapping a rocket to a car, the car caught fire but the rocket worked, next action: try adding rocket to a backpack. When this happens where is that insight captured so that it’s not discarded. Yes the rocket car didn’t work, but the insight remains
I guess my question/pain is what does project management look like when things are so unknown. You somehow need to make progress despite not having a clear plan.
