  7. 7. Reflections I work for a very small company. It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement or cleverness of an idea, or worse yet, an idea that works well for us but maybe not our customers, vendors or strategic partners. By working to solve a problem outside of my work context in this course, I have gained valuable insight and information into where we are falling down on the job of creating and evaluation solutions. We ALWAYS include the position of our stakeholder into our thought process, not just our own. And, we must test out ideas to see---not just guess, where they will lead.
