TeamHealth 2.0 Release

Let’s CRAWL > WALK > RUN > FLY Together!

Announcing the TeamHealth 2.0 Release!

We’re excited to share our official release of the TeamHealth 2.0 questions which have been revamped to follow the Crawl | Walk | Run | Fly model.

Why This Change?

  • Our current questions only described the positive/high behavior for each competency. Many new Agile teams were ranking themselves too high, which led to some of the data not being an accurate reflection of their health and maturity.

  • We wanted the questions to provide value by making it easier for teams to identify where they are from a maturity/fluency perspective for each competency (crawl, walk, run, fly) so they have more targeted conversations about HOW to grow.

  • Our hypothesis is that for larger organizations with hundreds of teams and not enough facilitators/coaches, by providing more clarity on the questions, we will enable ScrumMasters and other team leaders to facilitate these sessions more effectively and engage coaches where they need the help.

Who Contributed?

  • We reached out to our large community of customers, partners and coaches to help us revamp the questions.
  • We scheduled several public review and feedback sessions, in addition to enabling coaches and leaders to provide feedback outside of these sessions.

  • In total, we had 35 coaches who averaged 8 to 15 years of Agile experience engaged in this process (it's a miracle getting 35 senior level coaches to agree to anything!).

  • View the full list of contributors below. We are very grateful for their time and effort!

Frequently Asked Questions

How will the release of TeamHealth 2.0 questions impact our previous retrospectives?

Your previous assessment results will still be available in AgilityHealth. The new retrospective results will roll up with your previous results in the TeamHealth Radar.

Should we expect a dip in the ratings within our TeamHealth Radar results?

With the implementation of TeamHealth 2.0, you may find that some teams have rated themselves higher in previous retrospectives and there may be some right sizing that needs to take place. Overtime, this will level set and you will have results to compare to from the previous quarter. For now, know that this may happen and use the retrospective itself to facilitate and expose the necessary conversations.

When will the TeamHealth 2.0 questions be effective within AgilityHealth?

Our goal is to release the TeamHealth 2.0 questions on October 11th. If you have retrospectives scheduled for October 11th or later, please wait until the new questions have been released to set these up. The new questions will automatically update in your account.

If you would like to delay releasing these questions for your retrospectives, please email success@agilityhealthradar.com and let us know how long you would like to delay.

Are you moving away from forming, storming, norming and performing as the maturity model?

Teams will still be going through the phases of forming, storming, norming and performing from a team dynamic perspective. However, we’ve decided to move towards using the  Crawl | Walk | Run | Fly model because we believe it’s more actionable and provides a roadmap for growth.

Can I rate myself in the Run level if I haven't achieved the Crawl and Walk stages?

No, the  CRAWL | WALK | RUN | FLY are additive meaning should have already surpassed/achieved the prior levels.

Are there any differences in how the Team Members approach the new questions?

Some questions are compound, which means they have two statements. If team members agree with both statements, they should rate on the higher end of the scale. If team members agree with one statement, they should rate on the lower end. For example, the walk scale is 3 to 5. So, if you agree with both statements, you should select a 5, if not, you can select a 3 or 4.
