„I found the socio-mapping exercise very useful both at an individual level in giving me team feedback on my team behaviours, and also at a team level as a catalyst for team process conversations which have subsequently led to tangible team improvements.”
Intuitive and user friendly tool for perfecting teams
Real Time Sociomapping (RTS) software has been designed to provide your organization with a powerful and easy-to-use tool that can boost the performance of your teams. It’s been tailored for consultants, facilitators and trained HR specialists. In just a few clicks, they can get a team session underway and moments later have all the answers transformed into a SOCIOMAP - an accurate and easy to understand map of relations.

Instant set-up, instant maps,
It may seem that “instant” is our team’s favorite word. Well, we do like when things work fast. With RTS you get a session underway instantly - it only takes a minute to set-up a project and you can do it from just about anywhere. Another great thing about RTS is its instant maps. Not only do you see them on the screen the moment the first person submits the questionnaire, but they also give the team members a chance to get real time feedback while every answer is still fresh in mind. The important factor is that the maps are generated uniquely from everyone’s perception of the team based on simple answers to straightforward questions.

Let the team lead the change
The facilitator knows how to get the most out of everyone involved and of course out of information revealed in sociomaps, therefore he can point out the roadblocks and suggest the right direction, but ultimately, it is the team who is in charge of finding the common ground. For every team member it is important to know that they have a say in which direction they want to be heading. It increases the sense of ownership and in the long run their motivation, engagement, efficiency and work happiness.

Control the flow remotely
You love your smartphone, right? Then you’ll definitely love using it for sociomapping. Our smartphone app is part of the package and allows the facilitators to control the maps and the flow of the workshop from anywhere in the room. With the smartphone in hand they don’t need to hide behind a laptop screen and lose touch with what’s happening in the room. The app has immaculately designed touch interface, which eliminates all the clicking and mouse scrolling that keeps the facilitator from staying focused on the people.
Who is already mapping
„Team Sociomapping was very valuable team exercise during our merger with another company. The newly created management team really appreciated the process and as a result significantly improved the interaction and cooperation.“
Vaclav Novotny, CEO MSD a.s. (Merck), CZ
„We have been regularly using sociomapping for getting team reflection and evaluating the important factors of our collaboration. The clarity of sociomapping visualization promotes discussion within the team about what works well and what we need to improve regarding communication and collaboration. It is a quick and effective tool for getting feedback and creating shared team vision, as well as for monitoring whether we fulfill individual and team commitments. A picture is sometimes really worth a thousand words.“
Mario Drosc, CEO Raiffeisenbank
„Thanks very much to the QED Group and AchieveBlue for delivering a revelatory communications assessment for our team. Between morning coffee and lunch they were able to quantitatively assess and visually map the current state of communications and need for knowledge sharing in a twentytwo person team. Our optimal target state was also defined, and they also coached us through the first steps towards moving there. These are outstanding results that I've never seen another approach that would generate them in such a profound way!“
Nicholas Cioran, Versatile IT manager Mackenzie Investments, Canada
"We use the results of sociomapping as a very efficient input for development and improvement of communication and cooperation within our team. We have also repeatedly appreciated the smart interpretation of the results by QED GROUP, and their valuable recommendations. I've noticed that sociomapping is a persuasive impetus for many people to seriously think about improving personal and team efficiency, and to invest their time and energy into it."
Pavel Kysilka, CEO, Česká spořitelna (Erste group)
"The team mapping process facilitated by Staub was an eye-opener for our senior team and a valuable tool for stimulating meaningful dialogue. Their clear, visual, easy-to-grasp set of maps showed the patterns of communication, collaboration and relationships at the executive level. The process showed strengths and identified opportunities for improvement and gaps to close. The follow-up mapping session made sure we had built in accountability. Individual team members, as well as the team overall, stepped up and made positive changes that could be seen from the first mapping session to the second one four months later. It is an innovative way to build stronger teams, an excellent product and process."
