I'm a manager of 12 software engineers at a giant software company. Thanks to the podcast and other training materials, I've succeeded at spending a good chunk of my time thinking about the future, resolving would-be blockers, and planning long-term for the team.
Here's where I'm struggling: I don't know the right way to arrange time with the team to discuss this stuff, without interrupting them and creating "just another meeting".
A few ideas:
- Bi-weekly 30m meeting/presentation
- Weekly 15m meeting/presentation
- Taking 10m at the start of sprint planning
- Trying to do it more informally
What has worked for you?
