More on Team Building
Five Categories of Team Effectiveness

If an organization loses sight of their mission and goals, has ineffective team roles, or poor organizational processes, the company can suffer. There are five categories of team effectiveness that every team should try to emulate:

  • Mission, Vision and Goals. Well-functioning organizations have a clear vision of the future and defined goals. They have a mission statement and purpose. Plans are developed collaboratively and work is performed with company objectives in mind.
  • Team Roles. Work in an organization should be organized to support the group’s function. Team roles and accountability should be clear to everyone. Employees should have a clear job description and follow their organizational chart.
  • Operating Processes. There needs to be a standard operating process for employees. Policies and procedures can manage the work of the group and support both task and maintenance needs. Task needs are activities required to accomplish work objectives, and operating processes include problem solving, decision making, and conflict management.
  • Interpersonal relationships. Interpersonal relationships need to be good in order to achieve goals. Every team member needs to work well with others and develop trusting relationships with one another.
  • Inter-team relationships. Different teams also need to be able to work together. Some groups operate within different time frames, have different goals, or different policies. But they must all work together in the organization, so compromise is needed.
