Why does the System have Different E-Mails for this Week and Next Week?
Our research has shown that by splitting the summaries into two (i.e. a current week’s summary
and a summary for the coming week) people focus far more and can’t jumble the two together.
The information that is included in the report is important, but equally important is the
thought process that the team member has to go through each week. Just five minutes spent
reflecting on the progress that has been made over the past week, and any problems that have been
encountered, and five minutes considering the week ahead can add a level of clarity that is
seriously lacking in most organizations. This is one aspect of the Weekly Debrief Technique that
team members immediately benefit from.
Most team members tend to complete the current week’s summary first and then move onto the next
week’s list, but there is no hard and fast rule as to which way is preferable. It’s usually best
just to leave your team member’s to it and let them complete it in whichever order they prefer.
