MAKING TEAMS MORE EFFICIENT

PHILOSOPHY:

Organisations are made up of people working together to achieve a shared vision. Since individuals are required to work in groups, considerable attention is focused on Team Building. Team Building can be applied within groups or at the inter-group level where activities are interdependent. Typical team-building activities include goal setting, development of interpersonal relations among team members, role analysis as well as team process analysis. Team building may emphasise or exclude certain activities, depending on the purpose of the development effort and the specifi c problems the team is confronted with. Change International Ltd. uses a unique facilitation methodology and best-practice instruments such as MBTI©, team preferences and Interest Inventories. This ensures that high interaction is a residual benefit and that there is an ensuing increase in communication, openness and ultimately trust.

CRITICAL QUESTIONS IN THE PROCESS OF STRATEGY DEVELOPMENT:

  • Do team members share information and support each other?
  • Are there goals that are valid for the whole team?
  • Do the team members proactively give in critical but constructive feedback?
  • To what extent are all team members constantly searching for improvement?
  • Do team members experience mutual trust and respect in their team?
  • How would you describe the communication process within the teams?
  • What has to happen after the team-building process occurs to call it a success?
  • How do you define ’teamwork’?
  • What stops the team from being more effective?
  • Are there critical dependencies on other teams?
