PPP is a framework for sharing team status updates:
- Plans – what will you accomplish next week?
- Progress – what did you accomplish this week?
- Problems – what is blocking you?
There are many similar formats, such as “top objectives, concerns, plan for next week.” Consider:
1. Always get it in writing
Status updates should always be done in writing, so meetings can be focused on discussion and debate. Check out Weekly Update for a simple tool to share written status updates each week with your team.
2. Respond to each update
When a team member shares an update, it’s valuable for the manager to acknowledge wins and jump in to provide feedback on blockers.
