The Signaling mental model
Everyone should draw their own version of Signaling so that the mental model is clear. Effective organizations Signal regularly during every part of the journey. Yesterday is important, of course, but tomorrow is a new day, with new contexts, and new problems. The sooner we can get a sense of what is coming, the more likely we are to meet our objectives and avoid problems. If we wait for the report, it will be too late to do anything about it.
