The Coming Together
We met today as a bigger team. There were three members from ground floor who joined us. One was still on his way to office since he'd just arrived that morning from home. He gave us all banana chips as testimony. Yum! Would that be a weekly ritual?
We're still to decide what format this extended MMM (Monday Morning Meeting) would take largely because 'upstairs' and 'downstairs' function differently. That's partly because the clients we handle are different. Ugh! Did that sound convincing? Well, it's like this - there really is a fundamental difference in the functioning of the two floors attributed largely to the kind of work flows and priorities dictated by projects, assignments, whatever you'd like to call it. So Ranjit wanted things to be a step at a time for 'ground' floor.
They would be observers to begin with, learning how the process works. 'The Process' isn't much really. Each Monday, you submit your best effort of the previous week to compete for the Sword of Honour. If you win it, you get to keep it and display it at your desk for a week. Sound's simple doesn't it?
