I get this question a lot, and I have read that each individual should rate the quality of the meeting (not a person or results), using their own internal barometer. However it often comes up wondering how to calibrate that, especially when new to EOS. I usually suggest asking their EOS Implementer™ about how the team should rate meetings, but one article that I found and liked is from Grow Exceptional.
Grow Exceptional writes in this article204 that describes 5 Criteria with an associated value to help you pinpoint a score.
- Did we come to the meeting prepared, and did we follow the agenda?
- Was the team engaged (was everyone heard)?
- Were we open and honest?
- Did we solve a real issue forever?
- Do we have clarity on next steps (to-dos created)?
The article describes how you can take each of those questions, and score each 0-2 in order to add up to a 10 rating and help you clarify where the team should improve.
I thought these seemed like a good exercise for anyone struggling with this question. Maybe not every week, but gives some great things to think about in my opinion!
What are others’ thoughts? Do you use any other techniques?
