Why does the System have Different E-Mails for this Week and Next Week?

Our research has shown that by splitting the summaries into two (i.e. a current week’s summary and a summary for the coming week) people focus far more and can’t jumble the two together.

The information that is included in the report is important, but equally important is the thought process that the team member has to go through each week. Just five minutes spent reflecting on the progress that has been made over the past week, and any problems that have been encountered, and five minutes considering the week ahead can add a level of clarity that is seriously lacking in most organizations. This is one aspect of the Weekly Debrief Technique that team members immediately benefit from.

Most team members tend to complete the current week’s summary first and then move onto the next week’s list, but there is no hard and fast rule as to which way is preferable. It’s usually best just to leave your team member’s to it and let them complete it in whichever order they prefer.
