The Detail Spectrum
There is a spectrum of teams when it comes to attention to detail. The extreme ends of the spectrum include those that are completely legalistic and those that are complete lackadaisical. Both have their justicifications but both tend to get distracted. Legalistic teams get distracted by the details and rules and miss the point too often. Lackadaisical teams allow themselves to be distracted by everything but the details. Great teams take care of the little things so that the little things take care of them. This is found in the reliable sweet spot between legalism and lackadaisical mindset.
