Most frequent best practice Tell the team the tactical discussions will happen at the budget meetings
Second most frequent best practice Have the right mix of adapters, positioners and aligners - the right cross functional mix
Second most frequent best practice Have the team discuss what is the long term and when should we shift to short term tactics
