An invaluable piece of advice for managers using an LMS to organize teams: promote an atmosphere of equality. Implement uniform operating practices which everyone will be expected to conform to, such as work hours and conflict resolution processes. Uniformity of policy and treatment emphasizes the equality of team members.
Downplay job titles of your team members and place greater emphasis on work assignments, and reward on a team basis while recognizing individual achievements. Use your company’s LMS to aid you and your team members in the laying out and executing of work assignments. Institute standard processes for executing work assignments on an LMS and in the group, so that everyone is following the same methods, and using the same tools and techniques. Creating an egalitarian work environment enhances communication as well as making possible the interchangeability of workers. Finally, an atmosphere of equality and teamwork stimulates the development of quality work products.
