Jump Start Guide for Team Members

What to expect

I know what you’re here for - you’re wondering ‘how is Cascade really going to make my job easier?’ Great question! Let me show you.

To start, let’s set the scene:

When you first start using Cascade

You and your team will get some amazing quick wins - like visibility over what the whole team is doing and a clearer understanding of how your work connects back to the company’s strategy.

Over the next three months

As you and your team continue to implement Cascade, you’ll begin to see some incredible results.

As Cascade becomes the center of your strategic ecosystem

You’ll start to see exactly where your work fits into your organization’s web of strategic priorities. You’ll be able to see the status of all of the work you own in one place, no matter where it’s managed, and you’ll have all the information you need to collaborate with other teams.

After all of your projects are connected to Cascade

You’ll be able to visualize all of your work, and its impact, in one location. No more waiting until your next performance review or having to cross reference between all your other tools.

Let’s nail down what those outcomes will look like in a bit more detail!
