Do you make sure Devs are comfortable with their assignments?

It’s easy when looking at availability reports and skill matrices to dehumanise the developers you’re assigning to work. Make sure to always keep the human touch by doing the following:

  1. Always call the dev before assigning them to a new client
  2. Make sure they’re happy with the technology
  3. Make sure they’re happy with the time commitment (e.g. X days a week for Y weeks)
  4. Find out if they need a handover
  5. Although generally client work always comes 1st, there may sometimes be internal bookings that might need to take precedence.
