When Receiving an Assignment

Seven questions to ask when receiving an assignment:
  1. What is the exact mission?
  2. What are the key deadlines?
  3. What resources are available?
  4. Do I have direct access to those resources?
  5. What are the anticipated downsides?
  6. With which other parts of the organization do I need to coordinate?
  7. Where do we hope to be when this assignment is completed?

I believe that the business case is also a critical part of understanding one's assignment.

As I wrote in a post about the same topic.
