Progress Updates on Accountabilities

According to the Constitution, the Progress Updates step in tactical meetings includes both progress on Projects and Accountabilities (see http://www.holacracy.org/constitution#art421 and http://www.holacracy.org/constitution#art423).  However, in my experience our tactical meetings only allow progress on Projects, and I believe this causes problems, since some roles sometimes need a step to share progress on their Accountabilities (typically recurring announcements or updates), rather than raising these progresses as tensions during the Triage Issues step every week.

BTW, I suspect that GlassFrog exacerbates the problems since it only allows Projects and it’s often strictly adhered to.  The guidance provided by GlassFrog is excellent, but we have to keep in mind that it’s not Holacracy and its expression of Holacracy is incomplete.
