My personal favourite is... 5. Add process Process leads to productivity The best way to demonstrate your value to the team is by introducing process. Rules grease the wheels of progress. Look for opportunities to schedule update meetings, daily briefings, and all-day reviews. Keep your engineers productive by requiring them to fill out tracking spreadsheets, status reports, and cross-functional executive update emails. If you don’t do it, nobody will. Get going: those voicemails aren’t going to “touch base” by themselves! Seriously, when did IT begin to get infected with these types? Back in the day we didn't have any of that nonsense and stuff still got done, faster and with greater efficiency. Ladies and gentlemen, if your web design company is struggling, may I suggest you fire your project manager?

May have some interest in collaboration around Android development.
