What effective teams need

Whatever we are called to do, the best plan is usually to do it with others.  As is often said, such a approach may not be the quickest or easiest, but it will take you the furthest and ultimately bring the best results.

It is very rare for a team of people to operate in a highly effective manner by accident.   The important question is, what does a team need to work well?

Here is what James Lawrence believes teams need:

  • Common purpose
    • Reason for cooperation
  • Roles and division of labour
    • Strategy for cooperation
  • Accepted leadership
    • Structure for cooperation
  • Effective plans and methods
    • Process of cooperation
  • Solid relationships
    • Climate for cooperation
  • Excellent communication
    • Means of cooperation
