Use this assessment to gauge team alignment with agile marketing values

This survey will help you to find out how they feel your company is currently doing in relation to these principles.



We recently updated the Agile Marketing Manifesto Values & Principles guide, which can drive an organization towards agility and serve as a basis for how we as agile marketers work.


But it is good to take stock of your entire team from time to time to find out how they feel your company is currently doing in relation to these values and principles. Use the assessment below.


Directions


Scoring:



  • Green: We’re nailing it
  • Yellow: We have some work to do
  • Red: We suck

If the value or principle received mostly greens, you’re doing well as a team and don’t need to discuss any further. If you have a question that received a lot of yellows and reds, pull those ones aside and discuss improvement actions as a team.


For co-located, in-person teams: 



  • Print this survey out and have each team member anonymously answer. Tally up all responses and hold a meeting with the team to discuss results and improvements.

For remote teams:



  • Option 1: Import this into a tool like SurveyMonkey.com and e-mail it to team members. 
  • Option 2: Hold a video call. Before the call, have all team members create index cards colored with red, yellow or green markers. Read off each question and tally up the number or reds, yellows and greens.
