Heres an odd idea I heard recently. In iteration zero, we are getting everything set up to run our cool new project. But tracking things can be hard.
So, what if the project manager only tracks the team wide needs like a development server or meeting room.
Then each team member gets given a yum cha card and needs to go and get a stamp for each thing they have set up for them (laptop, desk, role definition, login to team wiki etc).
I am not sure whether its innovative or just a little odd.
