Data-oriented team leading: Tracking skills and behaviours

We can do better than just “line manager to employee” feedback. A carefully made survey with a bit of data analysis can generate surprising personal feedback reports and also increase the team’s awareness. I am sharing my experience, toolset and insights after doing this in practice.

By looking from multiple perspectives, we tend to get more robust and complete understandings. We can apply this principle when leading a team. In fact, 360-degree or multi-rater feedback is a well known approach, but its effectiveness totally depends on how well it is tailored to the team and the organisation. We discuss here concrete details on how to implement a similar approach in a software development team, making use of data analysis and visualisation. In the end, both leader and team members get valuable insights to improve their work and daily life.
