As teams progress, they pass through stages of development. You understand that being prepared with tools and techniques at each stage is important. There is a team forming that will take on a production line. You want to be ready to provide training and development resources for this team as soon as they start working together.
You research various team-development models and pick one model that you will use to determine team-building activities before the team members start working together. Develop a plan that addresses the following:
What will you do to prepare the team for working together before they start?
Discuss the training and development activities that you will use to build trust and productivity in the group once they start working together.
How will you measure whether trust exists within the team?
How will you measure the effectiveness of this new team in each of the early stages of 3, 6, and 9 months of them working together?
