About to embark on a great idea to boost your business? But have you road-tested it first?

Fresh ideas and new projects can be the lifeblood of your business. But what do you do if they don't turn out as planned? - hold a post-mortem to figure out what went wrong? Alan Hargreaves suggests a better way might be to have the post-mortem first - what he calls a pre-mortem - to expose the plan to some rigorous questioning and testing. The process may well produce a better outcome than the original plan, and make a lot of post-failure soul-searching unnecessary.
