High-Performance Teams

What are the Types of Teams?

High-Performance Teams
For a team to perform at the highest level, in terms of both process and results, the members need to pay attention to four areas:
  •     Commitment—The team's establishment of a common purpose, and the roles, values, expectations and ground rules required to achieve that common purpose.
  •     Communication—The skills, processes and technology to best help team members communicate one-on-one and throughout the team.
  •     Collaboration—Team members' ability to work effectively with each other as well as with other teams in the organization, and to make decisions and resolve conflicts.
  •     Coordination—The need for team members to facilitate the team process and to provide appropriate rewards and recognition for team-related achievements.

Types of Teams

There are many types of teams in the modem work environment, but the three most common types are:
  •     Intact Vertical Teams—Members generally performing similar functions (i.e., sales,marketing, production, etc.) on a long-term basis.
  •     Intact Cross-Functional Teams—Members from different disciplines working together to produce results on a long-term basis. Examples include product development teams, standing committees, or quality circles.
  •     Project-Specific Teams—Members working in a limited time frame to achieve specific results. These include ad-hoc committees and search teams.
