Project First Document: "Cover"
Ask, understand before you plan
What is a "Cover" ?
It is the document where we write down:
Why is so important to write down a "cover"
Because it forces us to think about the
motives, goals, and obstacles before we start a project.
Then, every person that arrives at the project can be aligned without distortions.
" The power of Organization relies on participation "
When everyone in a project push in the same directions, incredible results can be achieved
The cover is a master document for every project that should be done before other documents.
Remember that the information on the COVER will be seen by many people. Even when they have a Confidentiality disclosure document, you should avoid publishing confidence information. In case of deeper details are needed, then you can make more "COVERS" adding the level of confidentiality at the "code" space.
Every person involved in the project should read the cover, so she/he can know how and why to align her/his motives. If she/he can´t do that, then she/he should not become part of the project/company.
The next document should be the "program" or business description.
