The weekly Level 10 meeting is an essential part of the Traction/EOS experience.
The "Meetings" experience in encouragework is a great place to spend time with your team to conduct your EOS Level 10 meeting.
After you have executed your regular sequence of activities including check-in, cutomer & employee updates, Scoreboard review, Rock review, and ToDo review, it is time to "IDS."
IDS stands for the following:
As discussed in the post on Covey's Quadrant 2 items, Issues are topics which are Important and trend towards the Not Urgent.
When recording an Issue in encouragework, you can optionally enable the "Value Calculator."
The Value Calculator is a simple means of ranking the open issues to help your team prioritize.
Value = Benefit / Cost
If you have an Issue that has the potential for a high benefit and can be resolved with a very low cost effort, there is a (relatively) high value to resolving this issue.
Conversely, if solving an issue results in little benefit and the cost is high, there is relatively little value to resolving this issue.
As you work through each Issue, determine if the Issue is really a concern. If not, simply close it and move on to the next most important Issue.
As needed, create one ore more ToDos and assign them to relevant Team Members with an appropriate due date. When at all possible, attempt to keep your ToDo's short, concise, and due at the next meeting.
If you find that you have too many ToDos assigned to a single team member, you have two recommended practices:
- Move the ToDo assignment to another capable team member. Always keep the GWC tool in mind. Does the Team Member: Get it, Want it, Capacity to do it--in mind.
- Adjust the due date on the ToDo.
As you work through your ToDos, it is common to need to re-prioritize based on an individual's calendar availability. Live in reality here. It is better to get a couple of items done and the Issues resolved than to burden team members with too many ToDos and nothing meaningful gets accomplished. Time is precious. Don't waste it.
