How to design a team to deliver powerful capabilities

Tue, Feb 21, 2017|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on How to design a team to deliver powerful capabilities

From strategy+business: Does the way your company manages its strategy influence the effectiveness of your teams? And does the way you manage teams affect your strategy? We believe the answer to both questions is yes, and in a new research study under way now, we’re testing that hypothesis.

You can see the evidence in companies with strategic coherence. These are companies with a distinctive identity. The few capabilities that make them unique all fit together, supporting a value proposition that few other companies can match. They choose to go in directions only where their capabilities give them a right to win. Great companies need great capabilities. And inside every company that does things exceptionally well are teams of people working across functional boundaries, year after year, doing things together they couldn’t do alone. · Go to How to design a team to deliver powerful capabilities →

Dealing with team members who derail meetings

Fri, Nov 15, 2013|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , |Comments Off on Dealing with team members who derail meetings

From Roger Schwarz: What does your team do when someone takes a meeting off-track? If your team is like most, the leader says something like, “Lee, that’s not what we’re talking about now” or “Let’s get back on track” or the team simply ignores Lee’s comment and tries to bring the conversation back to the original topic.

But if your team responds in any of these ways, Lee may continue to press his off-track point, the meeting may drag on with members getting more frustrated with Lee, and the team won’t accomplish its meeting goals. Or Lee may stop participating for the rest of the meeting and the team, without realizing it, loses Lee’s critical input and support for implementing a team decision. · Go to Dealing with team members who derail meetings →
