MEASURE, FOCUS, IMPROVE YOUR TEAM
Team Toolkit Part 1 - Analysis
If you really want to improve a team, then first, do some team analysis. Don't just jump straight into a solution (eg. they just can't get on, or they're not helping each other... so let's do some 'team building').
Try using the four team dimensions
- Requirement from the organisation, what the team is meant to achieve
- Purpose, goals, accountabilities within team
- Participation, group dynamics, healthy conflict
- Perception of the team by external stakeholders
to help identify what your team needs, wants, or would most benefit from.
Most teams are good at one or two of these dimensions, but high performing teams rate highly across them all.
High performing teams keep each of these dimensions in view. They regularly review and reflect on how they are going in each area. They are disciplined in identifying what needs attention and when.
A userfriendly printable pdf Analysis Matrix (2 pages) enabling you to scale a number of aspects of these dimensions is on the link.
Unfortunately the detailed formating was not suitable for this email, but you are welcome to use this matrix in analysing your team performance.
