Check-in Generator - Hej.Today
"Is there anything more annoying than a meeting that’s not focused on actions? One that makes you wonder, “Can’t we just get the agenda as a to-do list?” Yes, there is a worse kind of meeting. That’s one so focused on actions that you forget this is a room with humans in it. A great check-in can help you avoid that trap, and make every meeting better."

12 “Manager READMEs” from Silicon Valley’s Top Tech Companies
"When we launched our first SoapBox hero I was surprised to discover a document used to introduce her working style to her team. I had never seen that before and it was awesome!

Did others have these? I needed to know. Eventually, I found a treasure trove of examples by Engineering Leaders from companies with some of the best culture in tech.

They called them Manager READMEs, or Manager User Manuals. And they’ve graciously let me share them with you."

How To Do Effective Capacity Planning on The Scrum Team
"Traditionally, project managers used 6-6.5 hours as planned hours in a day for project execution. Focus factor is teams ability to remain focussed on the sprint goals without any other distractions. After multiplying total capacity with focus factor you get real capacity against which you can make sprint commitments or forecasting. This is the effective hours you can expect from the team.

In this example, applying focus factor say 0.6, then this team real capacity will be 400*0.6 = 240 hours."

Critique Cards
Critique doesn’t have to be an emotionally fuelled, scary thing. It can be objective, fun and more importantly USEFUL. The whole point of critique is to empower and excite the designer to make that piece of work even better.

Changing to more distributed digital teams
"As the years go on and technology becomes ever more entrenched in our day-to-day lives, many (including myself) are looking to use it to remove the necessity of our in-person physical form in the working world, at least some of the time."

Team Playbook
"Here's a dirty little secret: working as a team is really hard, and tools alone won't fix that. Books wax poetic about Silicon Valley dream-teams, but they don't tell you how to start improving your team. For Atlassian, the mission to unleash the potential in every team starts at home. We've developed a playbook that changed the way our teams work. Now it's yours to try, too."

Release the Devs
"Most recently, Happy Cog introduced a new team structure. This model is based around essentially breaking up what is now a 30-plus-person company into project teams: mini-companies, consisting of 5-6 people, each given permission to adapt “house process” in the best interest of the client and project at hand."
