The drive for business agility is creating environments where teams have greater autonomy and are increasingly self-managing
Highly skilled teams are immensely valuable, but also costly. As every individual is critical to team performance, it is vital they are engaged and performing well
Traditional approaches to performance management are ineffective and a poor fit for team oriented work places
TeamSense is a way for members of self-organising teams to get meaningful feedback
Feedback is exchanged by everyone in the team. Multiple perspectives eliminate bias. All team members are treated the equally. Performance becomes a team responsibility rather than the responsibility of just one person.
Exchanging ratings is lightweight and fast, so it can be done often. Ratings give context for carefully formulated recognitions and recommendations. Together these provide frequent meaningful feedback, that helps people to be more aware of their behaviours and develop their competencies.
TeamSense begins conversations around the competencies that matter to the team. It develops a greater awareness and understanding of these competencies and team member behaviours. These coaching conversations help to keep teams productive and healthy.
Participants have full control over who can see their ratings and feedback. All team views are carefully anonymised. Holding this information securely outside your organisation ensures that it can only be used for personal and team development. All this creates a safe place in which people can be candid with each other.
"We have been very pleased with the ease and simplicity of TeamSense; the whole team has benefited from peer feedback. It has prompted useful discussions and in one particular case the beginnings of a resolution to a long standing difficulty. I will definitely be recommending it to my clients and wider HR network. We are keen to see its benefits over the long term."

"TeamSense provided a way for team members to give each other feedback, something they had never really done before. In particular it replaced the previous hierarchical formal feedback systems with a level playing field which allowed managers and developers alike to share feedback with each other in an open and constructive way. This was invaluable and really enhanced team relationships and increased trust amongst the team."

"The system was easy to use and well thought out. There was high participation by the team and I really valued the input I got back from my collegues. Overall, I think the approach was well received in the company and I hope we continue to use it in the next quarter."

"Traditional approaches to feedback don't work for Agile teams. I wanted something fairer and better. TeamSense gives people actional insights into their competencies and behaviours, without being an impediment to self-organisation. It is a way into conversations that help new teams through their 'storming' phase. With appropriate agreements it enables teams to take responsibility for their own performance management."
