- The best sequence for getting started

Signet also works with staff functions to strengthen their capacity to
support operational teams through training, co-facilitation, coaching,
and hosting Communities of Practice.
A Signet Site Visit is an easy way to explore the fit
between Signet’s approach to AARs and your specific challenges,
objectives and vision for your organization. Over the course of two days,
we will present our AAR research findings and meet with a few teams and
stakeholders in order to listen to their business needs, answer their
questions or concerns about AARs, offer advice on how to apply them, and
share the experiences of other organizations as they have traveled down
the AAR adoption path. We can even provide coaching on an upcoming AAR.
If you have a specific business challenge or opportunity in mind, we
can conduct an AAR Launch. We help you clarify your business and learning
objectives, design an effective AAR solution, and launch the practice
by co-facilitating a Foundation AAR.
