Evel Knievel versus Incremental Always Advancing
Often there are two ways to get from point A to point B: step by step or all at once. I grew up admiring Evel Knievel the legendary motorcycle stuntman. He soared from start to finish in a “single bound”… sometimes. He attempted jumps over snakes, cars, buses, fountains and canyons. He suffered 433 bone fractures earning a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records.
We all love a daredevil, and we recognize when there is a high probability the big jump will end in a spectacular crashing failure! We may blush to think we hope to see the crash. In engineering development the more responsible approach involves smaller steps. Our projects cannot afford crashing and burning, however “thrilling” that may be!
