If you have similar activities or roles in your team, a great idea is to start designing your team in a team session.

That way, together, you can add in the bundles of work in a Unallocated ‘role’.

  • Activities are the day-to-day core work (i.e. strategy, planning, internal meetings, external meetings, administration as examples)

  • To give you an idea, we typically see on average between 8-12 different ‘activities’ or work bundles within a role.

Brainstorm and agree on the definitions of these activities.

  • What are the common types of activities that you do together?

  • How do you describe this work?

  • Is there anything that you have missed that's critical?

You can then use this template across the team so that common language and role taxonomies are being used.
