This has nothing to do with cars, let alone Audis, with the exception that this process "vehicle" is proven on the test track, well-built and fast. For my startup consulting work I developed the "A6 Process" for getting things done in a group. These six steps also apply to your work as an Interdependent Inventor. They are, in a particular order:
Acceptance. This step is where you make the commitment to your project based on what you've discovered so far... what you know and don't know. This is the step of trust. Trust in your team if you have one, and trust in yourself. This is going with what you've got... with confidence!
Assembly. Okay, you're going for it! This step is gathering your team, your resources and your resolve to move forward in an organized way. This is like preparing for an Arctic expedition — getting your team, your dogs, your gear and essential equipment together, and putting together your initial plan and checklist.
Agreement. This is your Solidarity Pact. You and your team, or advisors, or helpers or friends all need to be on the same page and understand clearly what needs to be done. Roles and responsibilities need to be clearly stated and understood by all stakeholders.
Action! Self-explanatory... I hope. At this point, "just do it," to follow Nike's sage advice. You've prepared for this moment, so act with confidence based on Steps One through Four.
Adjustment. This final step in the A6 cycle is for reflection, evaluation and next steps in preparation to... go back to Step One: Awareness. What happened? Why? What do I need to change to be better this next round?
