Connecting the dots

the truth about schedules

Schedules have three purposes:

  1. to make commitments about when things will be done
  2. to encourage everyone to see her efforts as part of a whole, and to invest her pieces work with the others
  3. to provide a tool to track progress and break work into manageable chunks
