The deconstruction of the traditional workplace hierarchy, the abandonment of performance appraisal, the impact of Millenials/generations Y and Z, all point to a substantial revival of teams and teamwork for the first time in more than 20 years. Leading companies are pushing towards a team-centric model but, for many others, team development remains ad hoc as they fail to recognise that teams hold the answers to increased effectiveness. Delivering improved team effectiveness across an organization does not have to be time consuming. The Team Diagnostic Profiler (TDP) is a methodology and process that is easy to use, self-administering and can deliver 10 to 20% improvement in team effectiveness when deployed in a corporate team strategy. This book is based on the TDP methodology and the years of research completed by the author.
