  40. 40. Pandora-Style Planning • Whole company (up to 6 ppl), every 60 or 90 days. • Ahead of the meeting, everyone submits requests to the CEO/ CTO, with the prompt “We would be stupid not to…” • Submit each idea as a slide, with a headline and a few bullet points to explain. • 70-100 items. CEO/CTO de-duplicates and assigns a $-value that represents the amount of effort • “Dollars” are created in an amount that represents current capaticy, divided equally among the 6 participants. • Day-long working session to “shop” for the most important items. • Chuck the unfunded. Group the fully funded, nearly funded, radically under-funded. • Discuss and bargain until you have a set of fully funded items.© LUXR.CO APRIL 2013 40
