Getting Buy-In

You get buy-in when people feel they are part of the decision and their input matters

When people are given more influence, they feel more invested.

Don’t discuss issues verbally. It is both inefficient and ineffective.

Instead, require that anyone who presents an Issue at a team meeting do so in writing.

The write-up should include both a detailed description of the Issue as well as their Proposed Solution. They cannot say “I don’t know.” They must at least present a guess. It must be phrased boldly, in direct terms.

All issues should be presented at the weekly Team Meeting.

Allow 5 minutes to discuss each Proposed Solution. If consensus is reached in that time – great. If not, don’t spend more time debating.
