Healthier teams are better performing teams

Your Team Health and Performance Rating is: “Project-Oriented” and that can be filled with cross-organizational pitfalls.

Project-Oriented Team Characteristics:

    • Roles / responsibilities are often formalized
    • SOPs replace individual checklists
    • Project-based outcomes are commonly achieved
    • Visibility / integration between projects is limited
    • Formal project management is pervasive
    • Team members are polite and professional
    • Organizational and leadership silos are common
    • Employee engagement is average

What does this mean:

Project-Oriented teams value consistency and predictability in work delivery — for individual projects. Without high-level integration across projects, myopia can develop — where the individual project plan (schedule, scope, budget) can overshadow emerging organizational imperatives. In other words, projects can proceed even when their relevance and value come into question.


Moving to the next step:

Teams choose to move to Step 4 (Program-Centered) when they’ve seen the need for more cross-project and organizational integration and collaboration. The team sees the value in a systematic view of work — in terms of quality (overall better outcomes), risk mitigation (we’re better at keeping ourselves out of trouble when we’re working together), and allocation of limited resources (strategy-based ROI).

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.)
