Your team members will receive email invitations to answer the Surwayne – in a fun way that takes a maximum of 2-3 minutes.
What improvement suggestions will we see?
The improvement suggestions are based on input from experienced project and team managers – they will give you good ideas as to what concrete action you could take to improve a certain dimension in your team. Surwayne ranks the improvement by effectiveness on the basis of data analysis. You will always be able to see what might work best in your specific case.
