• Quick & easy daily "walking of the board" focused on PROJECTS not individual efforts
• Easy to update
As our team at Intralinks grew, we needed a way to keep in communication with fellow team members--as we often worked on a diverse range of projects and seldom had time to interact. The previous strategy was to have a daily "stand-up" which consisted of going around the room (or phone) and each person listing off what they were working on and what work they had coming up. As I observed my colleagues, I noticed that many said their update and then disengaged (checking email, texting)--due to the long meeting time of what seemed nothing more than a glorified daily status update. I felt that no one was benefitting from the meeting and people often felt the need to "embellish" their status in an effort to sound "busy" to their managers. In an effort to selfishly ease my own dread of the daily check in, I conceived this project.
