Team Management

As tasks and challenges become increasingly complex, it is more and more the responsibility of teams, rather than individuals, to deliver the high-quality results expected. The advantage of teams made up of experts with complementary skills is that they are able to provide a greater depth as well as breadth of knowledge. Teams have, then, not only the potential to be more productive than individuals, but also to achieve work of higher quality. This, however, is not always the case. Teamwork often proves frustrating in reality. What can management do to ensure that teams achieve their full synergy potential? This is the key issue which the seminar will be focusing on. The five factors which are crucial in deciding whether a group is successful or not will be explored from a theoretical and, primarily, practical perspective.
