The table below highlights the most important components of a successful Teamgage implementation and best practices for maximising ongoing value.
Teamgage has sponsorship (and ideally a champion) from senior leaders.
Implementations where senior leaders
and engaged with the improvement process significantly outperform those that
don’t have sponsorship, or where leaders see Teamgage as a passive reporting
Teamgage Recommends – Ask your CEO to send a regular update addressing Teamgage actions and metrics
Teamgage results are embedded in senior management practises and reporting.
Implementations where Teamgage results
are integrated with senior management reporting cycles and form a strong part
of the decision making process outperform those that don’t.
Teamgage Recommends – Add Teamgage results to your senior management team’s meeting agenda
Teamgage Huddle is used to measure and drive continuous improvement on the organisational goals that are most actionable at a Team level
Implementations where Teamgage Huddle metrics achieve all of these criteria achieve significantly greater buy-in.
• Actionable at the team level
• Still important to those submitting
• Tangible - avoiding abstract, vague
or “high level” concepts
Teamgage Recommends – Regularly review your Teamgage metrics with executive and business leaders to ensure they remain relevant and aligned to business goals
Teamgage is being reviewed by those that submit on a regular basis (at least once per month)
Teamgage is designed to be used as a tool as part of existing team meeting rhythms and our customers with the strongest performing engagement rates are reminded to “Huddle” (review progress, feedback and create actions) at least once per month.
Implementations where teams that
submit meet regularly to review their results together and ideate on actions
achieve significantly greater improvement rates.
Teamgage Recommends – Results are reviewed as part of teams existing meeting cadences at least once per month. Meetings held reviewed and tracked as part of your Benchmark Report
Teamgage is being used by teams and management to create actions based on feedback and meeting discussions
Teams that use the actions feature in
Teamgage outperform those that don’t. Ensure that this feature is used
effectively, and Leaders are incentivised to create actions from feedback.
Teamgage Recommends – Decide on an incentive for Teams to create meet and create actions. Track in your Benchmark Report
Actions created and executed as a part of the Teamgage process are communicated to submitters
Organisations that promote the improvements and solutions that were created as a result of receiving feedback build significantly more trust with their teams than those who don’t.
Ensure you regularly communicate wins
and new ideas that come from the continuous improvement process so that
submitters know their voice is being heard.
Teamgage Recommends – Add a Teamgage section within any regular company-wide comms to share successful actions
Results and benchmark reports are reviewed across the organisation to identify where support is needed
Organisations that connect teams from different areas to cross-pollinate good ideas and assist leaders and teams having difficulties outperform those that don’t.
Organisations that offer Leader’s
additional support via our Teamgage Academy (click here) outperform those who don’t.
Teamgage Recommends – Use the Teamgage Academy to provide additional support to leaders. Review your leaders Teamgage Academy reporting and Benchmark Reporting to measure impact on their Team’s results
Metrics and goals are reviewed regularly
Organisations that regularly review their metrics, goals and alignment between Teamgage and their business strategy outperform those that don’t.
Ensure that goals and progress is
reviewed by Program Manager and your Customer Success Manager as part of regular
Success Reviews, and as part of an annual Executive Business Review (with
your Executive Sponsor)
