One more reason to pilot your idea now

Why pilot a program instead of waiting to make it perfect and roll it out to everyone?

A pilot program can be instituted now. If it needs to be tweaked, you can do it. You may find out it was a stupid idea. Since it's a pilot, it's no biggie; kill it.

But if you wait and wait and wait to get that perfect project ready and then gather all the consensus approvals needed to do it - which could take months - guess what?

Quite often, the market you're aiming at has moved. Quite often, a competitor has come up with a better idea. Quite often, the excitement for the idea has waned.

Piloting gives you a chance to take the pressure off and to view the idea for what it is - an idea. And, if it's a good one, you can then roll it out to everyone.
