Element 39. Lack of Showstoppers > Score Elevation Tactics

Score Elevation Tactics

If you can circumvent the showstopper, you are often on the path to success because no one else would have the courage to challenge it.

If the showstopper is somehow vulnerable, it is almost certain to be accompanied by an attitude of hubris by the beneficiaries. If you are about to overcome the showstopper, do so in absolute and strictest confidentiality. This will allow for an increase in your score. Sometimes a showstopper can be vulnerable to a political maneuver. Can you insert some political protection against a response by the owner of the showstopper? Can you create the image of a preemptive barrier to a showstopper response? Can you create a legal barrier, such as the threat of antitrust, breach of contract violation of some intellectual property right, patent infringement, or other litigation?
