Do you have an iteration or sprint calendar?

IterationCalendar

Does your team sometimes lose track of the important mini-milestones in your iteration? Our team has daily stand-ups and a task board, but we sometimes forgot when we were supposed to get a release ticket created or if we were promoting this week or next.

We created a simple iteration calendar and pinned it up at our stand-up wall. Each day we moved a red pin to the day we were at. It was a simple hack to help us remember to do all the little things, which was extra important on our team because each member took a turn with setting up the necessary meetings and doing the actual code promotion.

If you would like to learn more about how we managed our iterations check out module 5 of my Pluralsight course on Introduction to Working the Project.
