Why Enroll for the Smart Teams course?

Working effectively in teams is essential to the success of every manager. To do so, managers need their teams to work collaboratively and efficiently. In the digital age we live in today, communication and collaboration can become extremely challenging, as in many cases teams are spread across the globe.

The course combines cutting edge content from research at MIT, an engaging approach to learning including individual and peer group assignments, and a continual focus on application for you, your team, and your organization. All group discussions and assignments in the course will be done using a Socio Metric tool: Riff Platform developed by Riff Learning.

The Riff Platform is a cloud-based video client & data insights application. It measures conversational dynamics and provides feedback during and after your video interactions. Each participant in the video interaction receives objective data to help them learn about their interpersonal effectiveness and their ability to work with others. Riff's measurements can predict the engagement, satisfaction and performance on shared tasks.
