How to recognize an oversized team with TEAMsCOM?
I think, one of the most straightforward use cases is the evaluation of the whole team. As you can see in this report you can use a heat map to see overall relationships in the team. If you compare the intensity from both sides of the range then you will see huge differences.
You should focus on the most involved employees, they are probably overloaded and you should also focus on the less involved employee.

To be sure that you do the right decision is good to use more charts. As you can see in the report we use a top communication chart for the less involved employee to check if he is not involved in the other group of people.
