How (And Why) to Roll Your Own Frameworks in Consulting Engagements

June 2019
“To be successful a good framework needs to be simple, true and co-created: Simple because it needs to be easy to reference and talk about without having to explain it. True because it needs to be the right way of thinking about a situation - not just sound nice. Co-created with the client to ensure they have ownership and buy-in. Off the shelf frameworks have a hard time meeting any of these three goals, and in particular can be dangerous when applied to the wrong problem.” Long post but worth reading. Makes an excellent argument for freelancers and consultants to forgo commonly used frameworks in favor of creating them alongside your clients.
