    Hey guys,

    One of the biggest mistakes I see organizations do time and time again when implementing new Dynamics 365 solutions or new functionality in their existing solution is NOT going live until the solution is "Perfect".

    Let me explain:

    We demand perfection!  LOL...

    Although - honestly - I could not agree more.  The best things to do are give them what they need, and work out what they want.  Like a long term agile project.

    Thanks for the video Gus!​

    I often get caught in the perfectionist trap, but I absolutely agree.  I try to develop with the motto of incremental improvement over delayed perfection.  Plus, you need that constant feedback loop with users/stakeholders.  If it is not perfect, fail fast.

    Also, I like the reference to the La Sagrada Familia church!  I just finished reading Origin by Dan Brown, and it is featured prominently.

    Thanks Gus. Always a good reminder. I put a ton of weight on my shoulders to try and ensure the CRM is working in the most efficient way possible. This is a great reminder that it is okay to do it in phases.

    Thanks again
