Often we fall in love with measuring qualitative aspects of agile teams in assessments. One thing that I find as a catalyst to high performing teams is actually engagement, trust, alignment, and purpose. If we create cultures that nurture these areas, we enable high performing teams and happier people in general.
On my team, we currently measure these areas with OfficeVibe. It is a regularly polling engagement assessment tool that integrate easily into slack and allows for anonymous team feedback. I use this as another feedback loop and measurement of experimentation. For example, my team has mentioned there are not any healthy snack options in the office, resoundingly. So I introduced a fruit bowl and low and behold, the health score improved almost as quickly as the fruit disappears daily. I am curious what others do to ensure engagement beyond the regular conversations and interactions with people.
