TBH, I'm skeptical of Peak. Quantifying every commit, email sent, file uploaded, etc. could encourage the wrong behavior. Of course the number of emails sent isn't a direct measurement of value or productivity. Peak could encourage the wrong behavior.

I agree @rrhoover. This seems like automated micro-management.

I'm conceptually a huge fan of this. I talked with these guys a couple months ago. They currently only have 1 year plans. Which I did not want to sign up for. I wanted to give it a try and see how it actually worked. If/when they ever add monthly plans I'll definitely give it a whirl.

Agree that this encourages vanity metrics of work - the 'GSD' mentality doesn't really mean you are being productive.

@rrhoover would you see the value of “passive" data collection across a team and allowing an employee to be more granular in daily updates? Perhaps it helps kickstart staff communication on project milestone. I can't find the old article but Google PMs would issue daily bullet points around the following: - Completed (tickets) - In progress (features, specs) - Blockers (development or mgmt) The email was just a few lines and would be sent horizontally across teams. When you received the email, you could respond and a new “bullet report" would get generated for your product. If I remember correctly, this was a small hack Google built and then later open sourced the email system.
