TL;DR: Writing things down is still an undervalued skill in the software engineering field, while it can align incentives (titles and compensation) and help scale the organization.

Have a written agenda before the meeting, then write up and send out decisions and actions afterwards. A simple way to run projects with fewer surprises? Have the team write down what they are planning to do and share it with others.”
