The Most Recent Issues You’ve Closed

Brent Ozar wraps up this month’s T-SQL Tuesday:

So when I’m meeting a new team and learning what they do,  I’ve found it helpful to ask, “What specifically was the last issue you closed?” Note that I don’t ask, “What are you working on now?” because that tends to lead to long-term projects that people want to do, but not necessarily what they’re paid to do. If you ask them about the last specific task they checked off, that’s usually related to something the company demands that they do because it’s urgent. It leads to fun discoveries about what people think they do, versus why managers really keep them around on the payroll.
