Aha Handbook

Deliverables Etiquette

Expectations for deliverables.

1. Insist on the highest standards

  • Sloppiness is not tolerated

2. Plan interim checkpoints

  • Check your progress on something at 10% complete with a direction for completion, 
rather than building something that is 90% done and realizing the work was 

  • This is what is expected: 10% (within a few hours of assignment), 40% (within a day or 
two), 90% (1 week before deadline) 

3. Always know percentage completion for any deliverable off the top of your head 

  • Be able to defend the number and know what next steps are required to get to completion

4. Speak intelligently about how your deliverables or tasks fit into the overall company mission

  • Every deliverable/task should be a step towards helping the team achieve our ultimate mission
  • Ask questions and make sure you know where the company is going from a big picture perspective
