IDOARRT is a simple tool to support you to lead an effective meeting or group process by setting out clear purpose, structure and goals at the very beginning. It aims to enable all participants to understand every aspect of the meeting or process, which creates the security of a common ground to start from. The acronym stands for Intention, Desired Outcome, Agenda, Rules, Roles & Responsibilities, and Time. This tool provides a structure that’s more than your average agenda. It gives full context for everyone involved, stating everything about the meeting to be held or prepared.
An “IDOARRT” also gives participants a chance to contribute, to raise any requests, concerns or additions to the plan. It enables you to clarify all assumptions before the meeting or workshop and build a common agreement that fits the needs and expectations of everyone
