NDA

NDA…

Non-Disclosure Agreement?  or

No Discernible Advantage?

Currently, we are overrun with NDA’s.  If the trend continues, we will have to insert this function into the job descriptions of our team.  Thus, I must ask.  What is the real worth of these documents?

If one is dealing with the types of people whose character allows them to break promises, then the NDA is useless because these people will break the contract anyway.  They are able to break whatever contract they sign.

If one is dealing with the types of people whose character forbids them to break promises, then the NDA is again useless because these people will not break a promise whether or not it is written down.

So… what is the value?

Any answers out there?

Lucky Punches happen all the time

Gold mines are all around us.

You can find one, too.  But, you have to look.   So, how does one find a gold mine?

One hires a prospector!

I enjoy dispelling myths and one of my favorites is the myth that lucky punches never happen.  Companies assume that:
a)  they never happen, or
b)  they depend only on luck and thus it is not worth it to look for them.

This has not been my experience.

Lucky punches happen all the time.   Finding them is part art and part science.  Science can be taught and art can be bought.  Thus you can find them too.  I have found several of them during my career and can find them for you.  I can also teach your organization to find them.

I offer consulting and execution in all phases of the product life-cycle.  However, my specialty lies in the front end: delivering attractive business opportunities.
