TeamMate aims to equip team leaders, managers and enterprises with the skills and behaviours to meet the challenge of managing remote teams and to exploit the benefits afforded by the use of remote team-working. It will draw from and build on the results of earlier projects and research and, through the assessment of 150 managers, it will result in a new understanding of the challenges faced by and the current practices of enterprises, regarding the management of remote teams.

The project will develop and test a new on-line 360 degree assessment tool called TeamMate 360. The TeamMate tool will collect and analyse data from completed TeamMate on line assessments and generate reports capturing the current practices of managers and enterprises from a number of different sectors. These reports will be used by TeamMate trainers and participants to prepare improvement action plans.

The aggregation of the data will enable a new understanding of the behaviours and practices associated with remote team-working, in the form of a series of national benchmark reports. The benchmark reports will provide a new insight into the behaviours and practices of managers and enterprises from 7 countries and different types of enterprises (e.g. public and private; large and small; profit and not for profit).
