While I haven't used a daily pulse check of team member happiness, I've used sprint-based ones frequently following either a simple smiley/neutral/sad face or a stoplight criteria-based approach as popularized by Spotify.
I'd question whether daily is too frequent - I'd expect the team members to be open enough to share with one another if something is really bothering them on a given day and sometimes the perspective of looking back over a longer duration (e.g. week, two weeks) is needed.
I've never used it nor heard of it so I just learned something new. I read some stuff online and it seems interesting.
Thanks for sharing it.
I have not used it.
Good to hear the updates. Much appreciated. I might give the Niko-niko Calendar a try, and see what pans out.
I would like to try it
I have not used it. I have seen a board that plots overall mood in one axis and "work mood" in the other, so people can write their name in the spot that suits best, and move it on a regular basis. Form what I have seen, these ideas are well intentioned but soon enough people lose interest. A more direct and personal approach gives a better outcome in my opinion.
I am using one-one meetings or random discussions with members to identify the issues. If the situation calls for it and if it will be beneficial to the concerned stakeholders then I document the points and check the improvement periodically.
Much appreciate the input, folks. Many thanks.
I had not heard about niko-niko calendar until i saw this post. went and checked what it was. seeing that, i can tell that the effectiveness of niko-niko calendar will completely depend on the culture. So it will not reveal the real mood of the team.
