Build Project Support first

An often overlooked fastpath to failure of any major project is to not (properly) assess the support for the project beforehand (using Force Field Analysis or similar), or to neglect to act upon it before kicking off the project (if the restraining forces for the project are bigger then the driving forces). Don't let your sense of urgency fool you, and do not assume you can always build the support later on.

Rushing brings no results

I agree with you Guus, having experienced this the hard way. In the past, I allowed the urgency of a particularly important project in the organization to influence me too much. I managed the project in a hurrying style. But overrushing turns agains you, because after some initial succeses you will find yourself the only one pushing forward, while the rest of the organization is actually pulling you and your project back.
