Is your team diving in dark water? Try the error box analogy to navigate projects toward a goal | Tech Republic

Must Read

Jocko Willink, a Navy SEAL-turned-business-consultant, described the concept of the “error box” as it imposed to underwater navigation in a podcast. Visualize swimming underwater with little vision toward a target, as he said. You could use a compass for swimming toward a 500-foot-wide wall, resulting in a small error box (fewer errors expected) based on your ability to find the huge wall.

The error box’s principal application is to analyze the processes that connect crucial aspects of your approach. A mental image of the error box, or even a simple whiteboard graphic, can help you and your team talk about the “known unknowns” between different components of your plan, allowing you to figure out if you’re swimming for a 500-foot wide building or a tiny buoy in the middle of the ocean.
