WHY THAT IMAGE?

We do an all team sales and capacity planning meeting all crammed into a little meeting room each Monday morning using only post-it notes and painters tape. It started out of sheer desperation in trying to schedule well using digital tools, and became such an effective way to communicate and plan that now almost the entire company shows up in person or remotely to move around stickies and sync up for the week. It's a surprisingly fun 30 minutes, and represents, to me, our aspirations to transparency and community.
