  10. 10. The way they work At SlideShare, they practice agile software development, which is an iterative way of writing software. Instead of writing reams of product specs and then building that over several months, we have weekly cycles. We make a plan at the beginning of each week, execute it, see how customers react, and then make more changes. Every Monday morning, we start with a scrum meeting. It's like a rugby huddle—everyone in a circle. Each person has a few minutes to say three things: what you did last week, what you'd like to do today, and what you need from somebody else to do the work.
  11. 11. Software To manage software development, we use a program called Pivotal Tracker that keeps us all on the same page. I always have Pivotal Tracker open on my computer. Every team has its own queue listing its assignments. You can see when someone finishes a task and the work has been approved. Both the San Francisco and Delhi offices use Pivotal Tracker. We also use Skype and webcams to communicate. When you can see each other, there's more of an emotional connection.
