Team Flow Index: the best feedback a team can get

Speed up your team’s growth, alignment and development with TFI. Feedback, dialogue and action for the best team performance.

Keep your teams on top of their game with Team Flow Index

Today’s organizations are built on successful, high-performing and smoothly operating teams. Every team needs to continuously grow and develop to remain ahead of its game. As more and more organizations develop towards Agile collaboration models, teams need up-to date, collaborative and powerful tools to keep up with the challenges of performing in a semi-autonomous environment.

Grow your high performing team

TFI (Team Flow Index) is an innovative tool that helps teams identify, discuss and act on growth and development opportunities. Using TFI, the team works together to analyze the team compared to a benchmark. This is a real-time digital activity which gives highly detailed insights into where the team is doing well and what is getting in the way – without it getting personal or offensive. 

The tool contains a complete library of team success factors with corresponding development options, so it’s easy to translate development areas into an actionable development roadmap, either with or without facilitation. Afterwards you can use the Team Flow Index to track the progress of team development and continue the development and growth journey.

Team Performance Factors

The Team Flow Index offers deep insight into what is helping your team perform and what isn’t. The Team Flow Index model consists of four categories (Design, Fuel, Engagement, Identification) and 20 underlying factors. These factors are derived from the 17 most popular team development tools.

Engagement leads to being connected

The factors in this category relate to team members’ ability to process information, balance different interests, solve conflicts, develop trust and learn from each other, without direct interventions from the team leader. 

This category is especially important if the team exists to manage and coordinate complex operations.

Identification leads to being committed

The factors in this category focus on team members connecting emotionally to the team. Although some of these factors can be important to teams in general, this category is especially relevant for teams who are constantly innovating and pushing the limit and so require considerable effort from each team member.

Design leads to being enabled

This category encompasses five factors that are the most basic elements for a team to work together. These factors are especially important when a team is newly formed or if the performance of individual contributors is the most important deliverable for the team.

Fuel leads to being energized

The five factors in the category fuel motivate team members to invest energy in the team and its goals. This category is especially important when the team is improving productivity. Fuel remains important for most teams to be successful, but especially for teams that share common goals & objectives and for whom continuous improvement is important.

Digital, smart and data driven

Built for today’s teams

TFI was built with today’s knowledge and digital technology for teams and squads working in modern organizations. It’s quick, simple and it keeps personal data safe and anonymous. 

It provides collated data and reports in real time, so teams can start working with the collected data straight away. And that keeps the energy level high! It encourages a constructive dialogue on improvement, without losing sight of strengths and achievements.

Each team is unique

TFI does not have a one-size-fits-all team model. Instead, it works with a unique set of benchmarks, which means that your team will be measured against a relevant benchmark that fits the job your team does, as well as the environment it works in. This is crucial, because experience has taught us that medicine for one team can be poison for another. 

This means that TFI will show highly relevant feedback for your team and that TFI outcomes are actionable and lead to real, tangible improvements.

Data driven

TFI uses data in a unique way to continuously refine and improve the benchmarks it uses. Also team data is logged, so that progress can be tracked over time. It will even allow you to access team data to develop company-specific benchmarks, to fine-tune the feedback offered to teams.

 

The Team Flow Index will enable you to
  • Apply dynamic benchmarks for each type of team
  • Identify key performance factors for teams in your organization
  • Create an efficient, complete and actionable picture of team performance factors
