At work we have something called the “Tasks Workboard,” and part of it looks something like this:

Tasks Workboard

The idea is if you want someone else to do something (especially if it might take more than a few minutes), you make a task on the Tasks Workboard, and the team leads will decide who on the team will do the task and what the priority is. Tasks can be anything from small bug fixes to enormous projects.

People stop by our office asking for things without making tasks. Usually we are working on other things. Sometimes we are dealing with actual emergencies.

So I cross stitched some decor for our office door.

Make A Task

Someone asked, “Isn’t that a little passive aggressive?”

I answered, “No, it’s really quite direct.”
