    • Who is on the team? 
    • How does it function? 
    • What is it doing? 
    • How is it doing? 
    Start off by thinking about your team context.  I have 5 questions with possible answers.  Pick the answer that most closely resembles the character or activity of your team.
  • 3.
    • 1.  Do you set goals that affect the entire team - Does the entire team have to participate to meet the goals?
    • Yes!  A majority of the time goals require participation from the entire team:  5 Points
    • Sort of.  Some times the team's goals require participation from the entire team:  2 Points
    • No.  Goals are always for individuals. 0 Points
  • 4. Score:______
    • 2.  What percent of the team can fail in their individual activities before the entire team is considered to fail?
    • Almost none.  Individual failure quickly results in team failure:  5 Points
    • Some.  The team can tolerate the failure of some of the members, but less than half.  3 Points
    • Most of the team can fail and the team will still be considered successful.  1 Point
  • 5. Score:______
    • 3.  What portion of the team need to collaborate or work together to achieve the main objective facing the team right now?
    • Most of the team has a stake in solving the main challenge today.  5 Points
    • Half of the team is really critical to address the main challenge, the other half is marginal.  3 Points
    • One or 2 key individuals are really key to address the big challenge.  0 Points
  • 6. Score:______
    • 4.  How often does the team have to "divide and conquer" (by assigning goals to sub-teams) to meet all the expectations on the team?
    • Frequently.  Customer demand requires us to split up to cover all the needs. 0 Points
    • Regularly.  It is not unusual to split into sub teams and undertake different tasks. 3 Points
    • Never.  We don't divide up into teams working on different things.  5 Points
  • 7. Score:______
    • 5.  Does the team shift activities or duties around to balance the load and relieve over-worked members and give more to members with capacity?
    • Yes.  People with capacity regularly help out those who are overloaded. 5 Points
    • Yes.  We have processes to identify and resolve overload. 4 Points
    • Sometimes.  Only if it seems really bad will we shift work.  2 Points
    • Never.  We expect everyone to pull their own weight.  0 Points
