    Team Launch Sequence (TLS)

    The Team Launch Sequence (TLS) helps newly formed teams, teams new to Agile, or any team that could use a boost get aligned, focused, and collaborating more effectively. 

    We have found that team improvement is less dependent on total time together, and more dependent on how frequently they have intentionally experimented with better ways of collaborating. Taking advantage of this discovery, we’ve broken down and redesigned standard team improvement efforts to help your team get the improvements most teams typically see after months in just two weeks. 

    TLS is a two week, guided experience, where the team does their existing work while experimenting with new approaches every day.
