The Issue Log. A Way to Bring Organizational Issues Up to The Surface.

  1. Describe the issue in detail. You must know what you’re dealing with. The more detailed, the more actions you can take to mitigate in the future.
  2. Severity of the Issue. How has this issue impacted the team and its ability to carry out its charter? Prioritize the most severe issues if time is limited. Leave the others for another time.
  3. Make clear who was responsible for the issue. This is an ongoing theme in Dalio’s book- tough feedback. Tough feedback is the hardest to dish out, but most important to progress. The more teams accept candid feedback as a cultural norm, the faster they can progress.
