Team Sociomapping is a unique and cutting-edge tool for developing and assessing communication, cooperation, cohesion and collaboration within working teams. It is exceedingly suitable to analyze the current and optimal relationships within top managerial teams, or in other working teams, and to present the results along multiple aspects. The results in return provide bases for the creation of a comprehensive development program.
We all have heard the saying “a picture is worth a thousand words”.
It works the same way in business world. For it is so much easier to understand the meaning of complex data through a visual representation of the results than just by studying complicated and detailed charts and graphs. This is what our refined, state-of-the-art Sociomapping tool does by generating compact 3D visual maps based on the received data and feedback. It gives you the key points of the finding within seconds.
Team Sociomapping is the proper tool:
- When in doubt about what can improve the efficiency of work related communication, Sociomapping focuses on the critical success factors of cooperation and gives a broader perspective
- When the leader, being too involved in day-to-day matters, cannot see the forest for the trees, it gives him/her specific recommendations on how to improve the teamwork and provides evidence to make the right decisions.
- When team members are involved in a project, which must not fail due to communication dysfunctions: the method provides involvement and buy-in for all team members.
- When you need to view the subjective perspectives in an overall objective landscape, Sociomapping enables the discussion of difficult topics during workshops
- When you need to track changes in time – it is able to display development in the team; it helps to understand what is happening.
Simply: when your team just cannot afford to fail!
“We used the team sociomapping tool at the beginning of this year during an operational meeting in HR . I noticed two very important things which took place during the seminar.
One is the fact that it was easy for the participants to understand the results and to accept the fact that there are strong points and areas to be developed. All of them received each other’s feedback in a positive manner and looked to understand how to “move to a constructive side on the map”.
The second thing that stands out is the quality of the tool as perceived by the management. When looking at the reports it is simple and visible that day to day perceptions are measured and receive a quantitative clear format.
In my opinion the tool is useful both for awareness in new, starting teams but I would highly recommend it as an optimizing tool regarding quality of relationships and communication in developed and mature teams.”

"At the Hungarian Siemens group a Talent Program has been introduced with the utmost support from the top management. We have selected Develor Consulting for the implementation of the first phase of the Talent program as a result of an open tendering process. The first phase of the Talent program was complemented with a Development Center (DC) so that we would have further information - other than the result of the performance appraisal results - for the compilation of the individual developmental plans for our talents. The challenge for us and for Develor Consulting was not only to deliver a high quality DC, but it was also to define tasks that would measure their talents according to the global Siemens competence system, DC observers would be able to objectively evaluate the talents’ competences based on the noted behavior and the same criteria and to have as much information as possible by the end of DC that can be utilized for the individual plans. The course designer group and consultants of Develor Consulting Ltd. provided an excellent system in assessing our talents. Both in the preparatory phase of tasks and in making Siemens competences measurable, and during the DC itself and in giving feedbacks they have been customer oriented, flexible and professional in carrying out their tasks. They implemented a high quality diagnostics methodology, which provided a result that exceeded our expectations."Gabriella Juhász , Head of HR Functional Center Learning & Development, Talent Acquisition - SIEMENS
"We have been working together with Develor on a Leadership Academy since 2009. Since we evaluated the first program as a success and a good investment into our business, we have started with a second group of leaders in 2011. When we were looking for a partner three years ago to help us to improve the leadership capability in our business, it was important for us to find an organization that is able to
- delivery high quality programs across our major markets
- work together with us in a flexible in business oriented manner that we achieve real competency rather than just deliver a training program
- ensure that the content of the program and the way it is delivered provides tailored solution in line with our company culture and processes
- apply and compare different tools and methods - 360 degree tools before and after, online and face-to-face tools, modular program structure, coaching, leader interviews, etc. to achieve maximum effectiveness
We are happy to work together with Develor since they fully satisfy the above criteria, and equally or even more important they proved to be an ethical business partner, seeking for a long term trusted relationship with its customers."Imre Vadász, Regional HR Director, SCSE - SONY
“ We have started co-operation with company Develor on our company wide project Safety Culture Change. DEVELOR was the most knowledgeable source on the market, that we have found. DEVELOR served as external consultant to our changes. We had also internal consultants as well as we hired well selected managers. Overall the project turned out in a great success. Therefore, I am personally recommending DEVELOR for consulting projects in Safety area. “Jaromir Odstrcil, Managing Director - Cabot Corporation
“We started to cooperate with the Develor company in April 2010, when we selected it from among several companies, which we addressed with the aim to increase the service level of our contact centre operators. We decided to choose their services based on a comprehensive approach proposed by them, which exceeded our original expectations and professionally reacted to our needs. Within the carried out development program, there were efficiently combined several approaches, e.g. in determination of the initial situation – an analysis of recordings of the contact centre, in the proper implementation of the program – a practically oriented training, mystery calling, individual coaching of operators and an application workshop as a supportive tool for introduction of new procedures in the practice. Develor subsequently formulated practical measures of a systematic character, which reflected the identified needs – from application of the legislation in force to adjustment of standards for operators and elaboration of the contact centre's methodology of work, which we applied in practice. The trainers and consultants were professionals, who helped us implement the proposed solution thanks to their committed and professional approach. Since we originally expected only the mere training, their commitment highly exceeded our expectations. Based on this experience and positive reactions of employees we have decided to cooperate with the Develor company in development of employees also in future."Kristián Fodor, Director of Marketing and Communication Division - Wüstenrot Poistovna
„Zentiva a.s. cooperates with Develor since middle 2005 winning in a regular tender. The cooperation is focused on managerial courses (leadership) and basic competences (communication, goal orientation) of sales representatives and product managers. The courses were realized by Develor according to Zentiva’s assignment which came out of its educational program. Quality of the course content same as professional level of delivering were always evaluated positively by participants especially because of interactive methods and practical application. Trainers were flexible in using languages realizing courses in foreign subjects of Zentiva a.s. because the courses were delivered not only in Czech and Slovakia but also in Baltic countries and Romania. Besides professional knowledge we appreciate also very helpful approach of Develor’s management and individual trainers.“Bohumil Mandík, Field Force Training Manager - Zentiva

Since the start of our cooperation, they have worked with us on both training design and delivery and demonstrated professionalism, innovative approach and high quality training skills. We have also engaged them in several teambuilding events that helped us to build good team spirit among our staff who provided very positive feedback after each event. We are looking forward to our further cooperation with them."Katarina Jablonska, HR Manager Sony Czech and Slovak Republics - SONY
