Our Approach to Developing High Performing Teams
Iterative Development of High Performing Teams is not 2 days of training. Team development happens over a period of time with training serving only as a foundation to know the rules.
1. Identify and Establish a Cohort
It is a well know fact that teams that work together excel together. We know this and recommend that you consider involving a cohort that will work together over the life cycle of a project.
We also understand and appreciate that pragmatically speaking not all team members are able to be co-located, all the more reason for SLIDE21 to use it’s state of the art Synchronous and Asynchronous video platform to develop your high performing teams.
2. Baseline Competency Assessment
We know every individual, every team, and leadership has to start somewhere.
Most organisations expect that with training comes the cultural shift.
Most organisations fail to send management and the leadership team to training.
This is a recipe for disaster, the blind leading the blind!
Here at SLIDE21 we measure what matters at the time the measurement occurs. early in adoption we, nor should you, have great expectations.
Our 8 question Retrospective Baseline Competency Assessment focuses on what matters at the beginning of a Transformation.

4. Competency Assessments
Our competency assessments mature with your team. We are firm believers in the ancient martial arts approach of SHU HA RI. It is a concept that describes the stages of learning to mastery.
SHU – Know the Rules
HA – Bend the Rules
RI – Make the Rules
Our innovative approach includes a number of components that considers all aspects of SHU HA RI when it comes to developing high performing teams.
Our assessments are conducted in synchronization with your teams increments or sprints and are naturally aligned with a teams retrospective.
Individuals, teams and management are elements considered during the assessment.
In the spirit of TRANSPARENCY, INSPECTION AND ADAPTATION, results are fed into our Business Intelligence Engine The whole team has visible access to this and are able to make decisions regarding areas for change that they need to take ownership and accountability for and or seek out mentoring and guidance.

What truly motivates teams?
A SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT!
Delivering high value goods and services, AND knowing that you contributed and grew as an individual and collectively as a team is what drives the success of high performing teams.
