The drive for business agility is creating working 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 success, it is vital that people are engaged and performing well together
Traditional performance reviews are ineffective and can be detrimental to team performance. The team-centric nature of Agile creates an opportunity to do something better
TeamSense is a way for everyone in the team to get frequent meaningful feedback
Feedback is exchanged by everyone in the team. Multiple perspectives eliminate bias. All team members are treated 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 environment in which people can be honest 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."
Head of HR Solutions at Outset UK Ltd
"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."

"I wanted a way for everyone in the team to get meaningful feedback. Something that treated people with respect and worked for traditional and self-organising teams. TeamSense creates a safe place in which teammates can have equal voice. Now I can exchange feedback with my teammates without looking like a line manager!"
