The purpose of an “IDOARRT” is to lead an effective meeting or group process, with everyone's nose pointing in the same direction from the very start! The power of IDOARRT is that it enables all participants to understand every aspect of the meeting ahead, so they can relax and trust their time is being put to good use. The acronym stands for intention, desired outcome, agenda, rules, roles and responsibilities and time.
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 and build a common agreement that fits the needs and expectations of everyone.
