As they say…”The best laid plans of mice and men oft-times go astray.” In this post we cover things that we did for first launch that turned out to be mistakes, what went wrong, and how we fixed them. We came up with the acronym “SLAGIATT” to describe what happened: “Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time”.
We’ve had more than a few SLAGIATT moments in the past, and will probably have more in the future. The key takeaways from any SLAGIATT moment are:
- Make sure you learn from your mistakes
- Fix the mistakes as professionally as possible
- Share what you’ve learned with others
- Learn how NOT do them again!
All things considered, we didn’t have that many SLAGIATT issues. Read on, and try not to laugh…
In Part II we discuss things that were OK, but needed improvement, and in Part III, we discuss some of the things we added later.
