Quick introduction

Check-in! Check-out! – it’s all about sharing with everyone in the group one’s status (feelings, concerns, state of mind) at the start and finish of every workday. It’s an easy way to get to know how the group feels and how work is related to the time plan. It’s a good way to keep the focus when working together in a team.


To quickly and easily uphold an updated status for the project or in the working group everyday. It makes it easier to see what actions you might need to take in order to keep the time plan or just keeping up a good team spirit!


When starting up a working day: Have a Check in! When ending a working day: Have a Check out!

This is how you do it, starting by sitting down in the team together, preferable in a round formation. Everyone answers the questions one after another.

Check in:

  • What did you do yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Is there something you need help with from the group?

Before ending the work for the day, do a Check out!

Check out:

  • What did you finish today?
  • And if there is unfinished work, what stuff is left to do, in relation to the time plan and expected results?

Extended questions:

  • How do you feel today?


  • it together!
  • take action on information about delayed work tasks and talk about how you can solve them.
  • keep every person’s check in / check out short.


  • zoom in to much on details
