Rules of engagement - Success begins with respect!

  • Before installing the Busylights agree to some simple guidelines so everyone has a uniform understanding of the concept
  • Emphasize the importance of respecting the color guidelines
  • To ensure good workflow, agree on which tasks require “do not disturb” and which ones require only “busy”
  • Consider if the use of “do not disturb” should be limited to e.g. 1-2 hours per day
  • Inform surrounding teams and management about the guidelines
