The project team of an internationally operating company consists of team members who work at different locations. At the end of a project, a team feedback procedure is to be carried out in order to identify improvement potentials in virtual communication and to enable learning effects for the team members for future projects.
In a young, dynamic company, various flexible working models are offered. As a result, some team members work regularly in the home office. For the introduction of the flexible working models, monthly team feedback is carried out in order to accompany the changes with a mood barometer and, if necessary, react proactively with improvement measures.
A software company has decided to introduce agile project management methods. The work is divided into regular sprints of 2-3 weeks. These sprints are accompanied by short teamfeedback to keep always track of the mood in the team and possible improvement potentials.
WHAT IS TEAMFEEDBACK?
Feedback instruments do not only make sense on the management or employee level: they also play a decisive role in team development. Team feedback does not focus on a single feedback recipient, but on the entire team.
Teamwork can lead to high productivity and real synergy effects – provided it takes place on the relationship level as well as on the factual level.
Successful teamwork is determined by a large number of psychological processes. These strongly influence the factual work, in a positive as well as in a negative sense. Teamfeedback offers a valuable starting point for an intensive analyzis of communication and cooperation within the team.
In addition to a clear distribution of roles and a good organization, a pleasant and respectful working atmosphere is a decisive success factor. Transparent and honest communication can also facilitate a constructive handling of conflicts. Team feedback helps you to ensure that cooperation within a team is sustainable, positive and target-oriented.
Particularly due to high time pressure, no timely differentiated feedback is given in everyday work, so that anonymized standardized feedback processes are indispensable for team development.
Our aim is not to replace personal communication, but rather to supplement and support it with a structured analyzis. In addition, agile teams in particular can benefit greatly from a regular team survey in pulse mode, so that continuous feedback is possible, for example with Scrum Sprints.
Our tool is characterized by a systematic approach: After an in-depth analysis with a survey and the analysis of the results with PDF reports or the interactive dashboard, clues for team development can be derived. Through the subsequent discussions and the resulting development of follow-up processes as well as their monitoring with the Task Manager, changes following the diagnosis phase can be sustainably established.
