For the Army deployment, this is ” the year of production.” We are in full swing of BB and GB training plus project completion for certification. The work in progress is pretty high. We have a full pipeline of newly trained belts itching to do projects. But with a constraint to complete x number by the end of the year, do we accept lower project rigor in order to finish? Then increase the rigor as we go along? Or do we ensure belts really understand how to go from “soup to nuts” on a project before releasing them into the wild?

Surely project mentoring is a huge part of the equation, but will we end up mentoring more once they are done or less? What is the right mix?
