Team Effectiveness 1 - Analysis

This course is intended for established teams where team members know each other and have been working together for some time


Outline

The three Team Effectiveness courses are designed to be done in a sequence over a period of four - twelve months.

Team performance is often not planned, managed and assessed in effective ways because of increasing pressure and being busy. Performance management, appraisal and management control enable the team leader/manager to know what the team is capable of, what is going on at any given time, better awareness and understanding of problems arising and what to do to solve them. It ensures knowledge of individuals and anything that might be needed to ensure their continued commitment and high-level performance.

This course provides detailed analysis of the overall effectiveness of a team: where it has strengths, where it has weaknesses. An Outline Plan for improving performance is constructed. The course consists purely in analysis and does not seek to implement improvement. It is a necessary precursor to other work to improve the performance of the team.


Aim

Comprehensive analysis of team effectiveness.


Objective
s

To analyse where the team is strong and weak in Task achievement.
To analyse People strengths and weaknesses in the team.
Produce an Outline Plan for Improvement.

Team Effectiveness 2 - Implementation

This course is intended for established teams where the team members know each other and have been working together for some time


Outline

This course is designed to follow the Team Effectiveness Analysis course using the Outline Plan for improved performance as the starting point. The strengths and weaknesses of the team are examined through exercises, review, feedback and discussion. Specific actions are determined to improve effectiveness and performance.

To get the best out of individuals and teams it is necessary to plan how best to deploy and develop individual skills and abilities and to continually manage and review performance. For teams this results in higher motivation, consistently good results and a better atmosphere in which to work. For individuals it results in professional and personal development, increased commitment and consistently-improving performance.

Team Effectiveness Implementation will enable the team to move forward by addressing aspects of behaviour and the ways in which the team gets things done. An Action Plan is developed to ensure structured improvement. It will help the team to plan more effective ways of organising themselves and improving their individual and collective performance.


Aim

To use analysis of team effectiveness to tune performance.


Objective

To understand, and build on, the strengths of the team.
