Welcome to the week! Here we are again with some tasty reading nuggets to see you through Monday - hope you enjoy them

A tiny favour: We'd love to know about your first CTO or team lead role - what were you expecting, and what support did you have? What would you have done differently? Drop us a line at info@saccade.co!

Low Hanging Fruit (#63)

Visualize promise and ease of possible courses of actions to help pick

Reveal a previously drawn tree. Hand out round index cards and instruct participants to write down the actions they would like to take - one per card. When everyone's finished, collect the cards, shuffle and read them out one by one. Place each 'fruit' according to the participants' assessment:

  • Is it easy to do? Place it lower. Hard? More to the top.
  • Does it seem very beneficial? Place it more to the left. Value is dubious at best? To the right.The straightforward choice is to pick the bottom left fruit as action items. If this is not consensus, you can either have a short discussion to agree on some actions or dot vote.

That's it! Have a great week
