3-27 2013 Birthday Cake-s

Every project has a birthday, whether it is every two weeks or every month. It is an opportunity to remember that we are one step closer to our final goal. The calendar is the most important measuring stick used to gauge progress on any project.  Regardless of whether it is really the most important measure, it is the measure everyone understands and can keep track of.

Pay attention to the markers that show that time is passing (sprint reviews, demonstrations or milestones), and let everyone know what has been accomplished since the last important date. Everyone likes a celebration whether it is because of  a piece of cake or the demonstration of some tasty bit of promised functionality.
