Re-wiring the IT department: part 2

After setting out a Behance-style “energy line” for the IT department, I wanted a way for the team to team to take its temperature. We have a brief weekly standup meeting on Monday afternnoon, but that relies on having a leader in the room. I’m a big fan of building self-regulating systems: they give immediate feedback and hand people authority and hold them accountable at the same time, in equal measure.

This temperature gauge from Behance is perfect. Any one of the IT team can at any time adjust the flag and the whole team must repsond.

It’s a good way to let people know that asking for help is an important part of getting the job done.

    You should show this to the G6 teachers – could be a great tool for their students to use during Exhibition…
