Healthier teams are better performing teams

Your Team Health and Performance Rating is: “Just-In-Time” and that Can Be Both Chaotic and Unproductive.

Just-in-Time Team Characteristics:

    • Chaotic and random roles
    • Many self-serving team members
    • Few outcomes can be planned
    • Undocumented processes are common
    • Project management is typically ad hoc
    • Costs are inadequately managed
    • Team frustrations often run high
    • Employee engagement is low

What does this mean:

Just-in-Time teams rely upon individual heroics and strong personalities to get things done, and regularly run the risk of “things going sideways” because of conflicts or fumbled handoffs between team members.


Moving to the next step:

Teams choose to move to Step 2 (Task-Focused) when they’ve seen the need for more consistency in their work.  The impetus to move can come from leadership changes (the strong personality has left), or from a crisis where the lack of consistency has created significant risk, high legal exposure, unexpected expenses, formal employee complaints, failed audits, etc.

Healthy companies, we know, dramatically outperform their peers. The proof is strong—the top quartile of publicly traded companies in McKinsey’s Organizational Health Index (OHI) delivers roughly three times the returns to shareholders as those in the bottom quartile. (McKinsey and Co.)
