Have you ever had to loan out a direct's time to another group for a short time (4-6 weeks)? If so, how do you track goals, deliverables and progress so that you can continue to manage that person? Do you ask them to report back on what they are being asked to do? Do you ask for clear deliverables and dates from the group you are loaning resources to? A little of both?
One thing I am trying to avoid is having the group who needs help take over management of the individual. But maybe that is not appropriate and instead should just be a "cost" of receiving the newly allocated resource? But I also don't want to disrupt the development of this direct.
I searched for this topic and did not see a thread or a cast related, but if there is one please let me know.
