Reply to Writing a purpose and style

By Sam Burnett Topic posted 04/23/2018

What I remember from training was that a purpose should answer two questions:

  • Why does this Role exist? (which [@mention:477139080146610445] hit on above).
  • What does wild success look like for this Role?

That has helped us quite a bit.  We often go for Purposes that state an unreachable but ideal future state.
