How does a (mini) multinational like PreviewLabs keep the team together? Easy peasy lemon squeezy: our daily team meeting.
It’s kind of like what others sometimes call a daily stand-up meeting, which is not related to comedy but instead a typical component of the Agile software development method, which – for the record – we don’t follow at PreviewLabs: even the methodology called ‘agile’ is not light and fast enough for us rapid prototypers.
It must have started around 2017, not too long after establishing PreviewLabs Inc, when the team in Belgium kept forgetting that we also had a programmer in our US office (in New Haven at the time). We decided to do a meeting every day where people would briefly talk about their work of the past day – which helped us create the feeling of a single team.
Fast forward to late 2021, and we introduced a new practice: the daily screenshot. Every team member now prepares one screenshot to show the others what they have been working on. In this blog post, we decided to share a few of the screenshots of the past month. Enjoy!
