We Need A Verb Here

Somebody needs to make a proposal. We can show off our analytical acumen for hours, but until somebody suggests a way forward nothing is going to change. Of course, nobody wants to be the person whose idea flopped; it’s much easier to who goes along. That person washes his hands of a bad outcome. “Wasn’t my idea.”

That’s not the person you want to be working with, though. So make a proposal. Advance an overture. Suggest a strategy. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It just needs at least one verb.
