"Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice."
-- Dave Barry
"A misunderstanding of statistics might be a huge part of why projects are alway late at your company. " Are you satisfied with how well your company meets project deadlines? Why Are Projects Always Behind Schedule?
"Over apologizing can lead others to doubt you or lose confidence in your abilities." "Sorry" projects an air of self-doubt and pity, "thank-you" projects confidence and equality. Which do you usually say? Why You Should Say 'Thank You' instead of 'Sorry'
P.S. We're busy working on Productive.email, an enterprise virtual appliance that tells CEOs/CTO/CIOs what's being discussed by your employees over email/project management/source control.
Think about your latest product that you were excited to ship this year. Maybe it was software, maybe it was a new product line, whatever it was, did you get it to market by the deadline that you initially set? How about any other initiatives in your company? Were those on time?
And during your process of development, did you feel like you were kept in the loop by your VPs, directors and managers as to how things were coming along?
Now, imagine that instead of hearing second hand how projects were progressing, you'd receive a weekly report that outlines the conversations that are occurring over email, Jira and other sources of conversation in your company. This report outlines only the good stuff; who is talking to whom, what questions are being asked, how quickly people are responding.
