We share a common view on results and approach

Many team members feel that there is a common view of the outcome and the way to get there. This positive feeling is however inconsistent with other success markers which relate to coherence in deliverables and shared meaning of important information.  Probably poor communication creates a common but an insufficient clear line of sight.

Shared Context

A context is our personal story, perception or experience that frames the way we think and act. In groups the collective context, a coherent and shared ‘big picture’ of results and approach, stimulates co-creation and the willingness to participate.

The success strategy: We all recognize the big picture and we are willing to work together towards a collective outcome. We can discuss this factor using the following success markers:

  • Shared vision
  • Coherent overview
  • Interdependencies
  • Motivating outcome
  • Translate big picture


Individual improvement

Activate thinking patterns that are aimed at people and results using questions such as:

      • What do I want to achieve?
      • What do we aim at?
      • Who benefits?
      • Who is involved?
      • What is their perception?

Team improvement

      • Focus on a common frame of reference for results and approach
      • Take time to reflect and see the bigger picture
      • Stimulate a team culture of ‘success is a team effort”

Other interventions

Start meetings with an overview of results and approach (past and future)

Use methods for:

      • Defining product- and work breakdown
      • Visualization of results and customer journey.
