Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this Kit for?
This Kit is designed to build high-performing teams, supporting three use cases and roles: It is for team leaders, whether they are first time or aspiring leaders, experienced line managers, or squad leaders in cross-functional teams; facilitators and business partners looking for the knowledge, frameworks and tools to support their team coaching role; and professionals who want to improve their teaming skills on-the-job and are looking for the “how to” approaches to support their action learning.
What’s included in the Kit?
Built around the Team Kit Board, our canvas format, the Kit goes deep on six essential elements of high-performing teams: - purpose and goals - members and skills - leadership and accountability - rules and behaviors - communication and relationships - tension and conflict. Each section comes with a video, downloadable presentation materials, work sheets, quizzes for quick repetition, and other helpful resources.
How do I work with the Kit?
The Kit invites you to kick-off your work process right away and to progress at your own pace with a strong emphasis on direct application. On the Kit platform you have all the materials in one place, and you can access them at any time online. You can also download, edit, and print the documents you need for your offline sessions or workshops with your team. In addition, as part of both the individual purchase of this Kit and the subscription to the All Management Kits Bundle we offer a complementary personal online coaching session to support your onboarding.
How does the personal onboarding session work?
While this depends on the particular use case, Management Kits users typically benefit most from one of three options: 1. we use the time to give you a general walkthrough of the Management Kits resources 2. we discuss the general situation you are in, including some of the challenges and transitions the organization you work with is facing, and we subsequently compile a tailored guide to some of the tools and materials likely most effective in your situation. 3. we focus the discussion on a specific organizational, project or leadership development challenge of yours and look at how to best leverage the Kits for addressing this challenge.
How can I access the Team Kit?
There are two options to access the full Team Kit: 1. First, you can buy the Team Kit for USD 140.-, giving you unlimited access to this Kit. 2.

The Management Kits Story

At Management Kits we believe that management is learned in practice – so management learning interventions need to go where the action is. To be successful, they need to combine the most relevant thinking with an understanding of practitioners’ challenges. This is why our Kits and workshops translate key academic research into practical frameworks and tools for managers, entrepreneurs, and consultants using design thinking methodologies to maximize action learning and support users in developing their own management solutions.
