I'm struggling to get things done beyond the emergency break/fix.  I'm in a manufacturing environment and we have maintenance projects, small projects, large capital projects, compliance projects, not to mention lists of action items scattered across multiple tools.  I'm thinking about moving my monthly staff meeting to a weekly stand-up meeting at the white board in the control room to try to get my team all on the same page of what the priorities are and who will accomplish what by when.  I'd like your thoughts on this approach or other ideas when you feel like the whirlwind is eating your lunch!

I feel the same way and I work in the credit card transaction payment processing segment of the financial industry.  We've begun daily stand-ups akin to scrum meetings.  So far, so good. (though as a 'C', I hate more meetings)
