Weekly check-in and level up for a design team. For either distributed or centralized teams it’s worth taking time to come together and share status and skills across the team.
The meeting lead should be ready to curate speakers and topics each week for this one. Making sure to bring in a diversity of thinkers and topics. These can range from the very serious to the light-hearted and from teammates to folks outside of the team or even the company.
Teammates should leave this session feeling their project status heard and supported and full of new approaches to problem solving and tactical know-how.
I start everyday with two tabs open and one of them is Trelliswork. I love that it lets me document decisions and when I need to reference something we decided last week, it's right there.
...everybody can contribute, and everybody can be in there together. And then you've got transparency into what you talked about and what needs to get bubbled up.
We've been working in Google Docs and Spreadsheets for so long, but I really like being able to see and plan my agendas all in one spot, because it's usually just all over the place ... or nowhere.
