The Core Protocols

Inspired by the book "Software for your Head" Dr. Neil and Kris have decided to implement The Core into nsquared. We will be trialing the program for a week.

Today's kickoff meeting included an introduction to the The Core Protocols. We each made posters symbolizing our committment and understanding of the concepts and hung them around the office. Take a look!

The Core is a system designed to help members of a team to share a united vision. To participate in The Core is to maintain the following processes:

  1. Checking in with oneself and one's team
  2. Practicing unanimous decision making
  3. Aligning, announcing intention, and setting goals
  4. Creating a shared vision

Some of us bought in immediately with a "thumbs up" while some of us needed additional information and convincing. In the end, we all agreed to give 100% to the trial. We will report the results in about a week so stay tuned. You can read more about The Core at http://www.mccarthy.com/.
