“Teams, Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success-Henry Ford”
WHAT IS IT?
Team management is the ability of an individual or an organization to administer and coordinate a group of individuals to perform a task. Team management involves teamwork, communication, objective setting and performance appraisals. Moreover, team management is the capability to identify problems and resolve conflicts within a team. There are various methods and leadership styles a team manager can take to increase personnel productivity and build an effective team.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Every employee is dependent on his fellow employees to work together and contribute efficiently to the organization. No employee can work alone; he has to take the help of his colleagues to accomplish the tasks efficiently. It has been observed that the outcome comes out to be far better when employees work in a team rather than individually as every individual can contribute in his best possible way. In organizations, individuals having a similar interest and specializations come together on a common platform and form a team. Team management is about ensuring people do this successfully.
Team management best practice must be seen from the perspective of ‘What is the optimal method for managing groups of people to get the best results for the company?’ whatever method you choose it must be adaptable enough to deal with high/low growth periods, fast changing market conditions, competitive environment, meeting customer needs and achieving corporate goals whilst fostering a culture where people enjoy their work.
Whatever model you chose, it is important to choose something fit for purpose, each organisation has its own unique set of challenges as no two organisations are the same, so find something that works for you and ensure whatever you choose it has the following behaviours, adaptive, quick/lean, continually improves and is results focused.
