Track Progress and Get Visibility with Value Scout’s Weekly Check-In

Working with a large staff can be difficult, especially in an all-virtual environment. Even if you don’t have a big staff, it can be hard to keep up with everyone’s progress on a weekly basis (let alone at all!). If you’re creating annual or quarterly plans for your own company or for your clients, you most likely create your initiatives and do-outs as a result of those plans. But what happens after that? How do you know what tasks are being completed, and by whom? Maintaining visibility of your enterprise’s progress is crucial to ensuring you’re on the right track to meet your value goals.

Weekly Check-In is a feature that allows you and your team to provide weekly updates and add context to completed initiatives. You can also track progress at a higher level with your team’s quarterly summary, populated by the information shown within Weekly Check-In. It’s easier than ever to keep track of value roadblocks so you can solve the problem before it snowballs into a more significant issue.

How Weekly Check-In Works

Every member of your team is able to plan their week by selecting initiatives and subtasks to tackle within the upcoming week. As the week progresses, each team member is responsible for marking their tasks and subtasks completed as they finish.

From there, Weekly Check-In helps track progress as the team completes the listed tasks. Team members are then reminded to “check in” at the end of the week to provide their Weekly Check-In.

Each team member is prompted to describe their week as “On Track,” “At Risk,” or “Off Track.” They are then cued to provide a summary, plans for next week, and to list any roadblocks that came into play to add some context to why they didn’t get a specific task completed. If a Check-In is incomplete, the user will be assigned the status of “missed week.”
