In academia, critical thinking is the norm, and asking questions is desirable. On most campuses, questioning ideas is the first step, and the second is questioning the question. As a result, academia has a reputation for being too open-ended and sluggish.
In Industry, we prefer to set a deadline, get things done, focus on execution. we worry that thinking about an idea could hold up progress. I suggest you combine the two approaches to be sure you are both thinking creatively and getting results.
Ask lots of questions but don’t let the questions impede movement. The questions should drive you toward a clear and defensible outcome.
