Writing = business planning

Writing is NOT the antithesis of agile. 

Agility comes from planning. Without plans, activities are just brownian motion. And you can’t have plans, especially shared plans, without writing.

Powerpoint decks are designed to sell, not explain

Most business decks outlining a strategy are woefully inadequate for highlighting the rationale behind the proposal. 

Decks focus on the take-aways and tactics. The details are lost and people will make up their stories to fill the space between the bullet points. 

Writing forces you to share the details behind the goals, the history, the context, the trade-offs. 

This allows the employees to make consistent trade-offs. Micro-decisions that align to the plan. 

Steven Sinofsky
"The first people to stop writing in a company are often those that were there the longest or the execs."
