A little technique "BASEDEF" to fully utilize the "20% rule" that can use the time of work for my favorite things

Known for what Google is adopting20% rule"Is that you can use 20% of the time of your work freely with whatever you like, and now that Gmail and Google Maps familiar to many people are born from this" 20% rule " It is known. It is a 20% rule that it brought about improvement of employee skill and motivation, but by only giving freedom, it is not possible to effectively use time and it can lead to lowering motivation rather than ending with waste Hmm.

Techniques that have been proposed to effectively solve such problems are "BASEDEFAlthough it is called what is called, if you adopt this method, operation of various projects may be improved.

Making 20% ​​Time Work

The problem in the operation of the 20% rule is that "for successful operationDisciplineYou will need it. " There are some wonderful things that can be accomplished by giving freedom, but on the other hand, even if it is passed vaguely as "Yes 20% please" time is lost sight of the destination if there is no clear goal or instruction Becoming wasteful, you could end up wasting time and money (employee's salary) in waste.

Techniques devised to solve such problems are "BASEDEFThat's why. BASEDEF's ability to be useful not only for 20% rule operation but for all projects around the world is to be able to use "summary (finishing)", "commentary", "encouragement" necessary for achieving a single project, "ease of maintenance By looking at elements such as "visualize" the necessary tasks, share it with other people, effectively utilize the 20% rule.

◆ Seven elements
Seven elements to be considered to advance the project are listed as follows. The initial letters of each element are the characters constituting "BASEDEF" as they are.

· "B" = Blog (blog)
It is said that the first way to contribute to the project is "to write on a blog". When I was involved in a blog led by other people led and feeling somewhat stalemate, when I write the content on the blog and listen to other people's opinions, a solution from a new perspective It may be found. By incorporating fresh opinions, the project may be moving forward.

· "A" = Apply (Take in)
The next contribution method is to take in the project actually. For example, it is most helpful to try using newly developed tools. By incorporating the tools my colleagues made into my environment actually, I can uncover unexpected functions and functions to add.

· "S" = Suggest (to suggest)
This is like reading letters and telling the administrator about problems found and urging improvement. For example, if you do not achieve your goal within 5 minutes after working according to the specifications, it is a good idea to set up a "5-minute rule" to target for improvement.

"E" = Extend (extend)
From here onwards, I will enter the area to add something concretely. By expanding tools and projects in the form of actual thoughts, we will further close to completion. Of course, work that keeps pace with the whole will become important.

"D" = Document (to be a letter)
To "visualize" by characterizing certain situations and problems. This includes tasks such as improving error messages, designing tutorials, and so on, which is similar to the above "blog", but it is deeper than that and it is in a technical field It will be the content that went by.

"E" = Evangelize (to propagate)
Missionary is an exaggerated way of saying, but this refers to work such as teaching colleagues and friends about projects by e-mail, posting on introduction sites. Of course, it is necessary to confirm with the project manager before going out, but it is better to ask the opinion widely released and gradually released than gradually becoming cared too much, The possibility of finishing is expanded.

· "F" = Fix (modify)
It is like reading a letter and correcting and reflecting found bugs and issues of the entire project.

◆ Actually apply 7 elements
Considering the above, we apply seven factors to each project. For example, suppose that there are four projects in progress, and the following matrix table shows the elements fitted to them. Project names are arranged vertically on the left, and seven elements "BASEDEFThere are squares written in each line.

Usage of this table is as follows. 20% Staff who does not know what to use the rule's time, look at this table and enter initials of your name in the square of the element of the project that you are likely to be able to do. At this time, the number of squares to enter should be about 3. As you can see that some trout will be in charge of the trout containing the name, it will make it easier for the whole project to proceed, as well as to make the 20% rule itself effective.

If you have more than one staff, please also fill in the initials as well. Then, the place to fill in may be biased, but leave it as it is. It is necessary for each staff to fill in what the inscriptions are about expressing intention to participate as a volunteer to the last.

By adopting this method, it is possible to make visualization of project content "effective" and effective use of 20% rule. Of course, if there are other work you want to do, there is a major premise to give priority to that, but when you can not find other things you can say it is a good way to not waste your efforts, Even as a method that can promote the progress of the project, it may be useful for daily work.
