On the storyboard for my current project, the project manager has pinned up photos of all of the team members. Each team member's picture is stuck on to the story they're working on, and there's a space for people who are on holidays. I'm not sure how common this is at ThoughtWorks – given that this is my first project – but this is something I'd not seen on projects before.
I think it's cool, and it's useful too. It's helped me remember who's who, having joined the project halfway through, and it's easy to see who's doing what (instead of initials). It made me feel like a real part of the team when my photo was added.
Sometimes the little things can really make a difference
