In the last post I discussed the Stand Up Meeting concept. Now I want to give you an example report.
I mentioned that the four questions each person should answer were:
- What have you done since the last meeting?
- What will you do before the next meeting?
- Do you need anything from anyone before the next meeting to keep you on track (are there any roadblocks that need to be cleared, help needed?)
- Are you on track with the overall plan? (if the plan or task extends beyond one meeting)
Here is what you might hear in a report…
“Since the last meeting I completed the upgrade of 15 computers to AutoCAD 2011. I also started investigating the licensing management software and the subscription site.
Before the next meeting I will complete another 15 upgrades to 2011. I will also define the tasks needed to move forward with our new licensing plan.
I need someone to help me gain access to the subscription site as I do not have a login yet.
The overall upgrade plan for AutoCAD 2011 says that we will be done in three more weeks. I think I am on plan to get that done.”
or you may hear…
“Since the last meeting I completed only 10 of the 15 upgrades to move to AutoCAD 2011. It is taking longer than we thought.
Before the next meeting I will complete another 10 upgrades to 2011. I will also refine the overall plan to reflect the new information and time line we uncovered that is causing the delay.
I need someone to help me if we want to maintain the existing roll-out schedule.
The overall upgrade plan for AutoCAD 2011 says that we will be done in three more weeks. I think it will take an additional week to get that done. We will also have to push back the licensing conversion”
