Plus/Deltas are typically done in last 10 minutes of a meeting or activity. Projects and organizations that really look to maximize their learning from the practice also use it mid-way through a longer meeting or work session. It can be particularly helpful as a coaching tool when a meeting is going offtrack – it will help recalibrate the team around the meeting’s objective and potentially help them identify a new objective.
Typically, the facilitator does the following.
1. Plan 10 minutes in the agenda for the Plus/Delta. Make sure the time slot doesn’t get used up by another topic. This is not something to be rushed and completed for the sake of completion. Attendees may at first be unwilling to appear to criticize the meeting. They may be afraid to participate. The facilitator should expect encourager participation until the practice becomes commonplace.
2. Explain to the group every time what a plus/delta is.
3. Draw a line down the middle of a flip chart or white board, label the top with “Plus” and “Delta”
4. Ask the team for pluses and deltas – in action phrase format. They should start their comment by stating whether it is a Plus or a Delta.
