Jim Collins on Discipline – part 3 of 3
Everything a startup does should be pointed at getting the product in the customer’s hands and then getting the next customer.
There will be a time for processes and middle management… perhaps.
Perhaps you will be acquired by then and not have to worry about it.
Your objective is not to win the next grant or to have a detailed research and development plan. In fact, your financials will be totally unpredictable so don;t spend hours tweaking the spreadsheet.
Spend the hours getting the product ready to ship.
