Taking Account

An associate sent me an excellent 10 minute way to follow up with employees, clients, providers, or anyone that is trying to meet an expectation. Though it doesn’t encompass the entire project management process, it’s an excellent way to take account of a certain task’s progress.

From the article: “Think of Scrum as a simple set of rules, that everyone plays by. The rules are so simple, that no one can forget them. The rules for the daily Scrum are to ask every person involved in the development 3 questions during a daily 15 minute meeting.”

  1. What have you done?
  2. What needs to be done?
  3. Are there any impediments in your way?

What helps you take account of productivity?
