How it works
The basis for our joint project, the QLabSprint, is a briefing in which we discuss together which problem you want to solve with your team. Contact us to start our cooperation!
And these are the building blocks to building a happy and successful remote team:
- You inform the team intending to clarify the general conditions during the sprint and manage expectations.
- Moderated presentation of the team members, their competencies, and ambitions.
- Introduction to agile working methods that promote self-organization and individual responsibility.
- Introduction to working with digital tools optimal for remote teams.
- Developing and sharpening a shared vision by reflecting on possible opportunities and obstacles.
- Definition of resulting tasks and roles.
Trust and a sense of belonging are essential for productive, collaborative work. The check-in, facilitated by the team members themselves from day two, is the daily starting point for both needs.
An efficient meeting of no more than 15 minutes creates security and clarity and allows the team to ask for support.
Another quick 15-minute exchange in the afternoon to coordinate tasks and organizational matters or to reflect on the day.
Weekly meetings to present interim results, discuss the status quo, and plan the next steps. The participation of decision-makers is essential for quick decisions and coordination.
The frequency of the retrospectives depends on the duration of the sprint. Here the team reflects, moderates the so-far cooperation, and independently develops solutions to problems. This strengthens self-efficacy.
Before the team dedicates itself to new tasks, the project results are presented, and – if necessary – new work packages and responsibilities are defined in a milestone plan. Here the participation of decision-makers is essential.
By the way: Most of the time, teams keep some of the learned methods independently.
Project completion, of course, depends on the scope of the project in question. Nevertheless, the team should be able to celebrate reaching the finish line of the sprint. Yes - this also works digitally!
