Finding the Right Mix

Completion requirements

The following key factors strongly influence the successfulness of the team:

  • The person in the chair – someone fairly senior on the team whose profile closely matches that of the Coordinator and who can chair in crucial discussions.
  • One strong Plant in the team.
  • A good spread of mental abilities.
  • A spread in personal characteristics giving a wide coverage of team roles – teams that can accommodate most or all of the team roles perform better than others.
  • A good match between team members’ attributes and their responsibilities in the team – in the most successful teams, the members’ responsibilities fit their team profiles.
  • Recognition of imbalance in the team and the ability to adjust to it - teams that have this kind of self –awareness and are prepared to adapt or change roles in order to build on their strengths or compensate for their weaknesses, are at an advantage.
