Prompts are little pushes to help you do something.
Reminders and Alerts are great prompts – “don’t forget you have an appt”.
But there are other prompts, ones that are more valuable that you can give your team.
“Hey, do we need time this week to clean up our tickets?”
“We should work on those unit tests for all the code we wrote this past week.”
“The team’s delivery is slipping… was there a reason you need to get ahead of?”
Prompts are the little kicks on work that is important but can sometimes slide – they help us not forget and when done right, give us pushes to be better.
