Anal, Analytical, and...A Bit Brilliant

To get to know her staff and their jobs, Dana is holding a "task auction." Everyone lists and ranks their duties; 10 being "I would do this even if you didn't pay me," and 1 being "You can't pay me enough." The exercise will not only allow her to see who does what, but also find ways to share responsibilities and change things up. Dana is also taking a note from Execution: The Discipline of Getting Things Done by Larry Bossidy and balancing her time spent on resources, strategy, and personnel. She now color-codes her Outlook calendar by each category for even time distribution.

After your startup goes beyond a few founders, think this makes a lot of sense to do QUARTERLY.
