Overcome weekly tasks together

Visibility is a vital part of good virtual team communication. Keep track of your tasks with the Plans, Progress, and Problems (PPP) approach to weekly planning. Ensure you’re moving toward common goals with your team members by keeping track of their progress as well. Prioritize your most important activities and receive updates from your team as they make updates to theirs.

The PPP approach is a simple and effective status reporting framework used by companies like: Skype, eBay, and Facebook.

Communication plans with your team

Plans

Make a list of 3-7 relevant tasks you hope to accomplish during this week.

These plans should be easy to understand by other members of your team.

Update your remote team on your progress

Progress

As you accomplish your plans throughout the week, move them to progress. Progress = Done!

Your goal should be to move all of your plans to the progress section by the end of the week.

Inform your remote team with any challenges you have

Problems

We all face challenges throughout the week. You can use this section to move plans that you had difficulty finishing – keep the “problem” plan here until it’s complete. Additionally, note challenges you faced during the week that you think your team should know about.

Transparency is key to achieving excellent virtual team communication.

Private discussions with 1:1s

Not all virtual team communication should be public. Weekdone has an option for 1:1s between team managers and employees. This gives the opportunity for either party to begin conversation when needed.

Maybe a team member rated 1 star for Job Satisfaction during the week, or listed a “problem” in their weekly planning. Managers can send a private message to check in.

Leader and Team Communication tool

Customize your remote team software

Weekdone has many opportunities for you to customize your company workspace. If “plans”, “progress”, and “problems” don’t suit you – change the titles to something more effective for your company.

Tools for Remote Team Communication

Adding custom categories promotes conversation between teams through sharing ideas, or even customer feedback.

These categories should be interesting and beneficial for your team.

Some ideas are: Future thoughts, Lessons Learned, Interesting Materials, Team Improvement Ideas.
