Survey Results

How often do you shoot down product tool choices your manager / team lead presents to your team?

Survey period: 19 Nov 2018 to 26 Nov 2018

Why you would ever buy a tool for a person using a tool without asking them about the tool is beyond me.

Our tech lead has informal discussions with team members before formally asking about tools, so there's no issue there. Management rarely suggests tools, leaving that to the tech lead and dev team.
