You aren’t alone. Part of the evolution of any EOS company is the issues list improving. If you haven’t rolled out EOS to lower levels it will happen there as well. Here are a few questions that might be helpful:
- Is the vision big and exciting enough? I couldn’t generate a very meaty issues list for going to the grocery store. But the issues list for going to Mars would be HUGE!!! Start here.
- Are all of your rocks and metrics on track? If not, there are some issues. If they are, are your goals challenging enough?
- Is the team mining for issues throughout the week? Walk around. Talk to people at the water cooler. You will see threads to pull EVERYWHERE. Just catch the symptoms. You can get to the bottom of it during the “identify” portion of the meeting.
