Group dashboard > Get it done > Workshop > Group Goals
Not every organization, nor every respondent, is inclined to jump on the bandwagon of change. The result: people not answering, people answering anonymously, people answering incompletely. Hence, when the change's importance is high (which is usually the case) and team commitment is low, it's time for the workshop "Group Goals."
The workshop consists of five simple steps:
Based on the target setting, there is now a clear list of improvement praiorities. If everyone in the group participates, tackling this priority list is relatively easily and will get done efficiently. Ask the group: "Can we look at some numbers and then decide whether we’re in or out?"
Step 2 shows the praiority list and shows how much one question contributes to the gap between the actual and target situations. Ask the group: “If we would achieve these target answers, how would that help our group?”. And ask the group: “If we won’t work on these target answers, how would that damage our group?”. Notes you take in the designated box are saved in the dashboard.
Step 3 shows a series of positive numbers. That only a few questions solve a large part of the gap between the actual situation and the target. That knowledge sharing saves so many days in reinventing the wheel. And how many respondents have the capacity to share
Step 4 shows a series of negative numbers. What percentage of the team has answered anonymously. What percentage opted out of knowledge sharing. What percentage did not finish the questionnaire? Ask some of the respondents what prevented them from answering the questionnaire. Show the results from the group dashboard and ask, "Is this threatening?" and "Does anyone feel uncomfortable with this?". "Or would this help us?"
Ask the group whether everyone is better off addressing the praiority list or better when not addressing the praiority list. In the end, there is a vote for three commitment questions:
