I love project initiation. The idea of taking something vague with a loosely defined goal and drilling it down to the deliverables, and the process of planning brings me great joy. It is one of those satisfying moments for me on any project. Once the decision was made to go ahead with the Fast Track Proposal Program, there was a hustle to get some sort of high-level roadmap and schedule drafted. That task Arthur entrusted to me and provided me with Murali Krishnan and Barbara Taylor, my project managers; Harvey Larson, technical architect; and Bill Holtz, our senior business analyst. All we had at this point in time was a brief idea document that the chief executive officer and his direct reports had compiled.
