Interactive teamwork-visibility model
You have probably seen a model of teamwork like the one below; or at least the fundtional stages on the left. (You might have seen it called "forming, storming, norming and performing"). The dysfunctional dead ends on the right may be new to you. This is a simplified version of an approach to diagnosing the level of teamwork, and to identifying the right approaches to team development. The full version enables different people to vote on different levels, and produces a visual diagnostic showing the weight of opinion about where the team is functioning. Move your cursor over different parts of the diagram, to see the effect.
