Due in 90 days, Rocks are big-impact items that drive the business forward. When properly defined, each member of the team takes their Rocks and has a clear path for the next 90 days. When there is ambiguity or confusion, team members will struggle to determine their action items and their Rocks become less likely to be marked ‘done’ in 90 days.
- Their Rocks aren’t clear enough, i.e. no consensus on what “done” looks like
- They fail to delegate tasks, confusing “ownership” with “doing”
- They don’t break down the Rocks into bite size milestones
Properly documented Rocks provide people with clear validation of what ‘done’ looks like. Rocks provide people with clear accountability and empowerment to make decisions to get things done. Well written Rocks often include milestones that take them through 30, 60 and 90 days, all the way to completion.
