Start smart is a tool for starting and developing teams and groups. The tool can be used at the first meeting, or at any point in time during a team’s lifespan. In short, starting smart is about exploring:
- What do we want to achieve?
- Who are we?
- How should we work together?
«Dozens of groups at UiB have applied variants of start smart, and it is seen as a great method for establishing and developing groups. The clarification of goals and working styles coupled with a personal twist equips groups with the right conditions for success.»
«I really like the tool and the research! I have used it a lot and with great success in both leadership groups and regular teams! I include it as a part of all the work we do regarding psychological safety and leadership group development.»
Kristine Laugen, Senior Manager: People, Organization, and business, Avo Consulting
