With respect to my one sentence summary of the 2nd Future of Leadership Salon --> Go slower, to be faster ... , we are just applying the same principle at work, as preparation for a large project starting shortly. Spend a little bit more time at the beginning to get the basics right, work on a common understanding and agree the priorities for all involved parties, to be much faster during the project work. I did not came up with this idea, I just applied common sense, as far as I see it. Some supporting material below:

Nothing helps make a leader more approachable than admitting your struggles, screw-ups and behind-the-scenes thinking on hard calls. If the leader makes this a priority, the whole company will be more open and methodical learning from failure. -- Scott Weiss, https://scott.a16z.com/about/
