Your boss wants to turn over the current business situation; business development team has loads of crazy ideas; mid-level managers wouldn’t want any change; and designers would always seek for perfection in one go. Overturning the status quo overnight will definitely give you all the painful lessons to be learnt, and so let’s get prepared for the worse and look forward to the best!
