We had to do it on a weekly basis for one client.

My goodness i had an SM like that. It was such micro management. And none of the other teams were doing this. But he wanted to try and impress his manager. It was dumb

Daily is more appropriate if you have an engagement where you are doing a lot of coordination work and/or your manager/client loves micromanagement.

Depends on the client. Acn typically doesn't require this

That isn't how Accenture does it, you on a performance plan?

No

BAH does it in 15 min increments depending on contract. By the minute in DC

Depends on client and industry, just be detailed and do it

This is from Accenture not client.

Sounds like you got a control freak for your Engagement Director or Partner
