What is a Level-Set and Why Your Team Needs It

June 30, 2021

You’ve probably heard the term level-set before in regards to business, but have you applied it to your Team?

In this unique time when Organizations are making decisions on going back to the office or staying remote, it’s more important now than ever to level-set your Team.

What is a Level-Set?

As a business term, to levelset means to make sure that people who will be working together all have the same information about the work. That way, everyone is working from the same knowledge base.

Why Level-Set Your Team?

You have new Team Members

If you added to your Team within the past year while everyone was working from home, your new Team Members may not be up-to-speed on all aspects of your Organization. Taking the time to level-set both new and returning Team Members will guarantee everyone is on the same page.

You have Team Members in new roles

Maybe you shifted people around into new roles this year. Maybe you’ve promoted some into higher positions. Now’s a good time to make sure everyone has their certifications updated. Or you can get everyone in the Team certified together! 

Your entire Organization is becoming more Agile

If there’s one thing the pandemic taught us, it’s how incredibly important it is to be an Agile company. Which is why every department should be adopt and follow Agile principles, not just the software and IT departments. Getting these new Teams into Agile workshops and classes together will be beneficial for the entire company.

Your Organization decided to stay remote

If yours was one of the Organizations that made the decision to stay remote either for a longer period of time or permanently, now is the time to start thinking about how you can keep Team Members level-set while not in the office and in the same training sessions. 

You want your Team to grow together

Empowered and engaged teams are always looking for career development and training. Treat your Team to a class or workshop so they can expand their knowledge and perform better. Everyone wins!
