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