In previous articles, we identified the first 2 Disciplines. #1 is the WIG (Wildly Important Goal). #2 is defining Lead Measures (daily and weekly activities that directly affect the WIG). This article is about Discipline #3 – Keep a Compelling Scoreboard. The philosophy is to make sure everyone on the team always knows the score, so that they can tell if they are winning. This is the Discipline of engagement. We’ve observed people always play differently when they are keeping score. If the lead (and lag) measures are not on a visual scoreboard and updated regularly, they will disappear into the “whirlwind.” The “whirlwind” is the myriad of lower level activities that chew up your time when you’re not focused on the WIG and the lead measures.

Great teams know at every moment whether they are winning. They must know, otherwise, they don’t know what they must do to win the game. A compelling scoreboard tells the team where they are and where they should be, information essential to team problem solving and decision making. There are two types of scoreboards: a coach’s scoreboard and a player’s scoreboard. Both have their place. If you’re looking for a Screen Printing San Diego company that holds themselves to a higher standard, you’ll want to get to know us. We keep score.

A coach’s scoreboard is loaded with data, often complex, and requires careful study to figure out if the team is winning. While important to the coach, it is not important to the players. A player’s scoreboard is much simpler. It defines winning, losing, the score, and the time left in the game quickly and accurately. The fundamental purpose of a player’s scoreboard is to motivate the players to win. People play differently when they’re keeping score. When team members themselves are keeping score, they truly understand the connection between their performance and reaching their goal. This drastically changes the level at which they play the game. We play to win.
