  12. 12. Types of Teams This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI. Source: Marie Kane (2001) Distinguishing teams from Work Groups
  13. 13. • No significant incremental performance need or opportunity that would require it to become a team. • The members interact primarily to share information, best practices, or perspectives and to make decisions to help each individual perform within his or her area of responsibility. • There is no call for either a team approach or a mutual accountability requirement. This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
  14. 14. • Group for which there could be a significant incremental performance need or opportunity, but it has not focused on collective performance. • No interest in shaping a common purpose or set of performance goals. Pseudo-teams are the weakest of all groups in terms of performance impact. • They almost always contribute less to company performance needs than working groups because their interactions detract from each member's individual performance without delivering any joint benefits. This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
  15. 15. • There is a significant, incremental performance need, and it really is trying to improve its performance impact. Typically it requires more clarity about purpose, goals, or work products and more discipline in hammering out a common working approach. • It has not yet established collective accountability. Potential teams abound in organizations. • The steepest performance gain comes between a potential team and a real team. This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
  16. 16. • This is a small number of people with complementary skills who are equally committed to a common purpose, goals, and working approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable. • Real teams are a basic unit of performance. • The possible performance impact for the real team is significantly higher than the working group. This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
  17. 17. • Group that meets all the conditions of real teams and has members who are also deeply committed to one another's personal growth and success. • That commitment usually transcends the team. • The high performance team significantly outperforms all other like teams, and outperforms all reasonable expectations given its membership. • It is a powerful possibility and an excellent model for all real and potential teams. This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
  18. 18. You can assess you team, using the following items 1. There is a significant, incremental performance need or opportunity 2. There is joint commitment to a common mission 3. There is consensus on objectives 4. There is agreement on working approach 5. There is true interdependency 6. There is mutual accountability 7. Members are committed to one another's personal growth and success 8. We outperform other like teams and outperform performance expectations This is the property of Project Management Institute and may not be reproduced or disseminated without the expressed written permission of PMI.
