Introduction

BTEC National Diploma in Business Exploring Team Development Introduction: In this Assignment I am going to describe how to build cohesive teams that perform well and explain how targets are set and team performance is monitored. I will also assess the value of different methods of monitoring the performance of a team. Task 2 (P2) How to build cohesive teams that perform well The term "cohesive" means unity, coming together, sticking together, while a team is a group of people who comes together in order to achieve a common goal. So "cohesive team" in my own word may be defined as the uniting together, coming together or sticking together of a group of people in completing a set target. To have a cohesive team you have to follow different processes in team building and also monitoring team performance. Team Building This is very important as it ensures the success or the downfall of an organisation. If an organisation employs the right staffs that possess the right skill in the right position then they will be able to perform effectively. There are different processes involved in team building which are: * Recruitment: The recruitment process involves identifying the skills, qualities and competences that will be required in potential team members (Job analysis). From the job analysis, a person specification will be drawn setting out all the qualifications and qualities needed by a new team member. In any organisation it will be very important that the right people are employed in different position and not just that they have to ensure they employ the right people who will complement each other and ensure for a successful team. ...read more.

TPI involves things like; the team will meet on a monthly basis, each person gets a chance to chair a meeting at some point, the team sets out to make sure that the views of all participants are listened to, setting work-based targets for example increase sales by 5%. * Monitoring: This will enable supervisors to be able to arrive at a decision regarding individual's performance, whether they are coping with their assigned tasks or needs help e.g. asking someone to design a leaflet when they are not creative. This also enables individuals to be watched closely in order to ensure they understand what their task is all about and if they know the step by step guide to completing their assigned task. * Reviewing: This involves examining/testing the contributions of individuals to the total outputs of the team. This will enable the organisation to decide on the team performance and suggest ways of improvements. * Performance against targets: This is when team leaders evaluate team performance against their set targets in order to know if they are able to meet their targets. From this they will be able to know what measures to take in assisting those that are lacking behind. * Support and development of team members: This is when support is given to team members who lack weaknesses in certain areas. Team leaders will work closely with the training and development manager so as to identify the training and development needs of their individual employees. Organisations do this by using TDNA (Training and Development Needs Analysis) ...read more.

Conclusion

* Responsibilities: This involves allocating responsibilities among members so that you can identify who is responsible for performing a certain task. W hen you create responsibilities for individuals you will be able to break down the overall organisation and team goals. * Accountability: Accountability is when an individual and teams have to be charged with the responsibility of achieving or completing a certain task. This will give each team member a sense of responsibility as they will know that they are going to be responsible for the outcome of a task (whether it be achieved or not). * Review and evaluation: After a team have been set up, it's the duty of the team leaders to ensure that the team are motivated and are working according to the best of their abilities. In this case the team leader will use review and evaluation to look into things like; how well is the team working? What steps can be taken to enhance a better performance? What other supports can be given to the teamwork process? Etc. This is used to look at the changes that might occur in a team's performance (if they've achieved a better performance than previously). They can then put processes in place to enhance a better performance. Review and evaluation also enable team leaders to see if the team has managed to complete the task assigned to them on time, also ensuring that the task has been completed without no errors or that it's done to a satisfactory level. ?? ?? ?? ??
