operating model

operating model canvas

The remote:af Operating Model Canvas is a set of activities, conducted synchronously and asynchronously over a 2-8 week period (depending on scale, complexity and muscle memory), to ensure that the way that work is governed and flows through teams can be optimised for the goal of the system. The first iteration takes longer due to the work necessary to map the landscape, but subsequent design iterations are far more efficient. On the same cadence as the strategy cycle, leadership re-evaluates the operating model design to ensure fitness for purpose. Regular review of the operating model in alignment with strategic cadence ensures that most changes are small and targeted and builds muscle memory and expertise to make change easier.

team group launch

General Stanley McChrystal’s seminal book ‘Team of Teams’ describes how leaders can be an enabling force that builds and protects a common group of teams. In the Team Group Launch we focus on the interdependent teams working together towards a common purpose, serving a common customer, or managing an asset or platform. In modern organisations it is of critical importance that leaders and teams within the Team Group understand the context in which they are working. The launch process enables leadership to establish key working principles, to define the system of work, and to establish an operational cadence. A Team Group Launch can be used as a basis to form all of its constituent teams.

team launch

The remote:af Team Launch is a comprehensive program that helps your team align on the workflows, social norms, communication channels, and success measures that are essential for successful remote work. Through a mix of synchronous and asynchronous collaboration, your team can create a "living document" that can mature and update as your team evolves. A remote:af Team Launch can be completed in as little as three hours. In this time your team will intentionally design their culture, optimize how they deliver outcomes and streamline communication. Each outcome on the right has a predefined activity, so it's easy to focus your collaboration time on the high value items.

event design

The key to asynchronous work is using collaborative time wisely. When team members are not co-located and are working at different times, there is a higher likelihood of misunderstandings and communication breakdowns. The remote:af event design canvas helps teams in evaluating and re-establishing their regular or high effort events. This helps save time and creates a sharp focus for each event. The best part? Any team member can get this done in about 10 minutes, just get a second opinion before putting it into action.
