Project name, description, preconditions and safety
Write down the project name on a rectangular sticky note of the medium size.
Try to avoid a name that is close to the final product name. If you use such a word, it tends to stick to the product under development and is very difficult to remove later. It is also a security measure to prevent outsiders from understanding what you are developing. If someone accidentally overhears a conversation or sees a document, nothing is disclosed.
Here are some alternatives used by some companies:
Use a word that has a strong connection to your goal statement. So, when people hear the project name, they will associate it with your goal.
Use the name of the day
Name of a constellation of stars
Name of a figure in a cartoon or movie star.
Write down a few critical bullets on a rectangular sticky note of medium size and add a link to a document with more information. Click the sticky note, mark some text, and click on the link icon to add a link to the document.
If applicable, write down a few key bullets on a rectangular sticky note of medium size and link the sticky note to a document with more information if necessary.
The safety and well-being of people are always the top priority. In development, we often:
handle unfinished products or prototypes
travel to customer sites
and are therefore exposed to many unforeseen risks.
Think through if:
necessary safety training has been done
everybody has the correct PPGs (personal protection gear)
necessary insurances are in place
people can travel in a safe manner.
The Covid-19 pandemic is a good example that may affect what people can do or not do.
