Sheepdog: A Framework for Action in Life and Work

The Sheepdog Community
The Sheepdog Community creates a digital space for people to work with others to take Decisive Action. Our community is focused 80% on Action, and we will help each other remove impediments that lie between us and our goals. Every Tuesday, we create our Weekly Sprint Plan as a community and execute the rest of the week.

Why Join Us?

 
Join us if you want to get things done, not obsess over productivity but by taking clear concrete actions that lead to:
 
  • Rapid Learning
  • Reduced Impediments
  • High-Tempo, High-Velocity Action

Schedule

We have a strict weekly schedule that we follow. Every person must plan their week on Tuesdays according to the Scrum template. No actions are taken on Tuesday. Wednesday’s are Sprint Action Planning and Start Days which includes updating your calendar, setting up meetings and starting work. Rest of the week is you working.
