How Oneteam helps you do the same


1

Team members set their weekly goals

Each Monday morning Oneteam asks your team members to list up to 3 main goals for the week.

Result: Better task prioritization

This constraint gently pushes everyone to think hard about priorities and what they can realistically accomplish within a week.

2

Goals are shared within the Slack team

Weekly goals are shared in a common Slack channel so everyone is on the same page.

Result: Increased accountability

Broadcasting goals within the team improves accountability and increases a sense of urgency.

3

Team members report progress & problems

During the week everyone is asked to quickly report their progress & problems. These are shared with the team.

Result: Collaborative problem solving

Because achievements and problems are reported and discussed openly, they get tackled early and fast.

Frequently asked questions


Is Oneteam based on the PPP (Progress, Plans, Problems) framework?

Yes! The PPP framework has been popularized by some of the world's best companies (Facebook, Skype). You can read more about it here.

With Oneteam we took some of the ingredients that made PPP great, built it natively in Slack and tweaked a few things to make it even more effective.

We already use Trello, Jira or some other tool. Can Oneteam still help us?

Great question. Oneteam is not a task management tool and also not a replacement for any of these tools.

The main purpose of Oneteam is to help everyone think about a few high level things that they want to get done during a week. And then communicate them out to the whole team. These goals usually then translate into one or more tickets in a task management tool. Or even just land on a paper as a long to-do list. Whatever makes you most productive and focused on achieving these goals.

I do mainly recurring tasks. Can they fit into Oneteam?

Ongoing tasks can fit into Oneteam if you rephrase them into actionable goals.

For example: letโ€™s say youโ€™re a recruiter. While you obviously do a lot of screening and interviews, thatโ€™s not a very useful and measurable goal. Instead, you could set yourself goals like "Send 3 job offers" or "Get 2 candidates to the last stage of our interviewing process".

Do you have some tips for defining goals?

A question we found helpful when setting goals is: โ€œComing this Friday - what would I be proud to have done this week?โ€

Thatโ€™s why we encourage simple, achievable and measurable goals.

We wrote a more detailed guide to setting SMART goals. Check it out.

Can we use Oneteam if we donโ€™t use Slack?

Unfortunately not. We are currently fully commited to build Oneteam only on the Slack platform.
