At a growing company, I think one of the many difficult things is communication. If you communicate ‘too much” nothing gets done because you’re in meetings all day. If you don’t communicate enough, then no one knows what’s going on or in some cases even what do to.
David Hassell, Founder and CEO of San Francisco based 15Five is out to change that.
The premise is very simple. 15Five provides employees with some simple questions to answer (it takes 15 minutes to complete). Their managers can then read these reports in about 5 minutes. These managers can then take the employee reports and roll them up into reports that their managers can read in 5 minutes as well.
Sounds simple – but it sounds quite effective.
