Bookmarked Run a Pre-Mortem to Improve Your Strategic Planning

A Pre-Mortem is a strategic planning activity that imagines a project has failed. This type of thinking helps to identify and mitigate risks early on in the planning phase.

Exploring the worst-case scenario is traced to great Stoic philosophers, like Seneca, who called it the premeditation of evils, β€œpremeditatio malorum”.

Adding the Pre-Mortem technique to your planning toolkit will help you to project your thoughts ahead, to comprehensively assess the challenges to a project and adapt your plans.

Tom Barrett talks about the importance of exploring any issues before they may arise by doing a pre-mortem. This involves gathering perspective and consider those impacted. This is something that Ewan McIntosh discusses in his book.
