The Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center team uses a countdown clock to help the team keep the meetings running according to a timed agenda. They start the clock at 75 minutes (it’s a large project and by consensus the team agreed¬†60 minutes is not enough time for the weekly coordination meeting).


They don’t always hit their target. This last photo shows that they are a few minutes over. They were at this point performing their Plus-Delta reflection, so close to finishing on time. They don’t sacrifice needed discussion to the clock, but they do use to clock to better manage needed discussion.

Try it!
