High Performance Teams - A Definition
« on: February 28, 2018, 11:39:10 »
High performance teams have, according to Katzenbach and Smith:

1. A deeper sense of purpose.
2. Relatively more ambitious performance goals compared to the average teams.
3. Better work approaches or complete approaches as the authors term it.
4. Mutual accountability; acknowledgement of their joint accountability towards a common purpose in addition to individual obligations to their specific roles.
5. Complementary skill set, and at times interchangeable skills.
