This team


This team. The one standing around you now. The one you rely on to push the project forward, do the things that need to be done, pull together when times are hard, support you when you’re suffering, celebrate with you on shipping-day. This team. These people. The most important soles in the project, the one’s you need with you. Your fellow travellers.

Which you know. Which you accept. And which you’re always in danger of ignoring as the pressures of the project squeeze your time, suck your attention, and provoke you to take for granted the things you’re most familiar with … your team.

Whatever else slips through the net, protect the time and care you give those you need the most.

Prioritise the meetings with them, fulfil your commitments to them, keep them in the loop. No short cuts, no half measures.

Skippy strategy: Build this team, every day.
