Check marks the spot

You're reading Leading Software People, a curated newsletter for people who are managing software teams, brought to you by Status Hero. We hope you find it helpful! (And if you do, please spread the word - we really appreciate it!)

Over at Status Hero, we're rolling out a new feature this week that we're calling "completion tracking." Here's how it works: each time someone on your team checks in, they are presented with a checkbox and asked "did you hit yesterday's goals?" Simple, right? The powerful bit is that in addition to check-in data, Status Hero will now provide quantitative goal completion tracking for your team (see the sneak preview above) without adding any more complexity or project management overhead. Feedback welcome!
