Blended Meeting Structure Template

Blended meetings are designed to help your team get more done in less time.

This will allow you to dedicate your synchronous time to discussions, decision-making, and taking action.

Single Source of Truth (SSoT) Template

commitment to documentation is one of the hallmarks of effective remote and hybrid teams. Consistent, clear documentation of decisions, work history, processes, tasks, etc. enable teams to work and get answers to questions without having to rely on other people. 

Single Source of Truth (SSoT) refers to a document or database that houses all the information you need to know about a certain function. Having just one single source of truth eliminates the need for duplicative content, which requires updating multiple locations, plus remembering where all that information lives. 

Example 4-hour team implementation:

  • Vote on a toolkit item and discuss with your team (20 minutes)
  • Watch overview video, review downloads, and record summary for team (20 minutes)
