Last week, I had dinner with a manager (also using Scrum) who has had great results with one-on-ones. It’s always nice to hear positive news about a technique that has brought me great results.
But I’m having a conversation with a manager who’s not having great results with one-on-ones. If I can understand more about why, I’ll post those problems and what happened. Could take a while.
For information on one-on-ones, see Use One-on-One Meetings to See People’s State. Esther and I are planning a workshop the week of July 10, 2006 to help managers learn how to do one-on-ones and other techniques. Stay tuned for real information in a week or so.
