I've been reading through the Project Kick-off Meeting Play. I really like most of the things in there, but I feel like a step is missing, at least for our organization. At my company, there is usually a program manager, a senior technology person, and the president or CEO involved in bringing a new project in, writing the statement of work, and figuring out who needs to work on the project from the rest of the company. So, the kick-off meeting might be the first time many of the team members are even hearing about the project. I like the idea of everyone proposing a vision statement/elevator pitch at the start of the kick-off meeting, but a lot of the team members won't be able to do that since they know next to nothing about the project. How and when do you introduce a project to the rest of the team?
