“Are we on track to deliver XYZ feature by the deadline?”
For software development leaders, this is the question we get most. We get it from the CEO. We get it from the other VPs. We get it over Slack from the PMs and SREs. We get it from our technical support leads as we pass them in the hallway. We get it by text message early in the morning from a sales rep who is on-site with a big prospect.
