No Slacking Here!

September 27, 2017 – September 28, 2017

How might we...

  • How might we communicate more easily with each other?

    Hypothesis

    If we use minimal prompting to invite three out of nine of our Design Team members to our new Slack group, then we can provide more support.

    Design

    Eugene will invite the Design Team onto the new Slack workspace, and we’ll see how many people join without any additional prompting.

    We’re planning on providing much more support, but we want to get a quick sense of how many folks are already Slack-literate and -responsive.

    Metrics

    Before the Wye / North Star call on 9/28, he’ll count the number of people who join.

    Learnings

    • Our leaders were quick to join, exceeding our expectations.
    • Of the seven leaders who have joined, only one (Jenny) has posted.
    • We haven’t heard any word of any difficulties.

    We didn’t learn much, other than how relatively painless it was to get people onto the tool. The next (and harder) step will be to see how and whether folks will engage, and whether they’ll find this space useful.

    Decisions

    Do a followup experiment testing people’s engagement.

    1. The #noslackinghere hypothesis was that 3 out of 9 of our leaders would sign up within 24 hours (before our power building call today). Four leaders (Sarita, Jenny, Mehrdad, and Nikki) joined before our call! Since then, Ev, May, and Lauren joined also, leaving Smiley and George. Very good results for 24 hours.
