I deal with this problem all the time with government clients. It has been so prevalent that we have adopted “fewest, most important” as our operating mantra! We’ve found that the main source of this problem is leaders and project managers defaulting to inclusivity from the get-go. By starting with every relevant voice in the room from all over our massive bureaucracy we’re bound to be overwhelmed by ideas, opinions and initiatives. It’s only when you clear away everything but the fewest most important people, pieces of information and projects that things get done, date-certain.
