In an interview Stephen Anderson Tells Todd About Implementing Visionary Ideas , “someone asked me about how to get other, less visionary stakeholders, to understand and embrace some of the ideas I was describing. My short answer was prototyping. As quickly as possible, in whatever form you choose, translate your concept into something visual that people can ‘see’ or experience”
It’s not that this has never been said before, it’s that we do need to remind our selves about it from time to time. Keeping things simple and prototype them will get you stakeholder buy in quicker than anything else.
