Team Clock Institute® Team Clock provides a diagnostic tool as the organizing framework for teaching team effectiveness, diagnosing team challenges, and targeting actions. Simply, each member of the team participates in a quick, 40‐question assessment survey. Results are analyzed revealing the strengths, vulnerabilities, areas of congruence and discord on the team. A debriefing session is facilitated to discuss the results and identify targeted actions that will bring measurable change in team engagement and productivity. Initiating a Team Clock Assessment is easy!
