Questions to consider when choosing projects to support and fund

I’m very deep into some work and have limited time to blog, but that’s an excellent opportunity to refer to work done by some great writers and thinkers, in my specific subject area.

Here is an excellent article by Simon Perks, a former colleague of mine, who is now working out of his own organization (respect, Simon!) on elements to consider when making choices about projects.

What he writes rings very true. Considering feasibility, I often feel people want projects to achieve desired outcomes, and that want replaces a calm, careful and concise assessment. Well, it should not. We need to remain aware of significant biases in decisions and not let too much emotion creep into the decision.

By the way, do visit Simon’s excellent blog at his site, here. He has more excellence where that came from.
