- When to plan:
- Before your fiscal year, or
- Before the calendar year
- Strategic vs. Financial -- which one first?
- Goals and Vision:
- Does it include longer term goals?
- Does your team know them?
- Every 3 months?
- Review the previous year's goals and results?
- "Doing" lists:
- What to start doing
- What to stop doing
- What to continue doing
- Employee 1-on-1's
- Know their goals
- Make sure they understand your vision
- Goals and vision need to be aligned with company's
We also talked about some goals and visions for Lean Coffee itself:
- Learning, supporting, networking
- Sharing of specific information (ie. real problems, real numbers)
- All advising each other
- "Group therapy"
- Case studies
- Want honest critique and feedback
- Establish a standard format
Really enjoyed the "Café Americano" and the great discussion. Always such a great way to start the day! :)
If you're interested, check out the HTML5 Meetup tonight. I'll be doing a brief intro presentation, followed by discussion and networking.
