To make it work, Dorsey follows a series of set routines. Meetings, for instance, are "highly regimented" with clear agendas and goals, according to a recent article in Barron's.
Dorsey also leverages themes for each day, such as business leadership or product development.
On Mondays, for example, Dorsey calls together a leadership meeting where his teams discuss what they're working on for the week and lessons learned from the week prior. Then on Wednesdays and Fridays, he blocks off 30-minute chunks of time to perform check-ins and receive updates from his employees.
Dorsey explains the reasoning behind this method in a 2016 interview with Fast Company magazine. "I like having a lot of repetition in my schedule," he said. "It allows us to see how we're actually growing, rather than randomness, which hides that."
