Due Diligence

by Christopher Paul on May 14, 2013

Similar to decision fatigue, I’m interested in what some call analysis paralysis. It’s where you over think a situation or decision, you lose sight of what you need to achieve or act on. It’s a huge productivity killer and greatly impacts on your agility to solve tough problems. This piece on performing too much due diligence from Fred Wilson reminds me of that:

…you can do too much due diligence. It’s important to talk to the market and hear what it is saying. But you have to balance that with other things; the quality of the team, the product, the user experience, etc. You cannot rely alone on due diligence, particularly early on in the development of a company and a market.
