  • PRODUCTS: Team Assess

    Our Team Assess Survey System is based on a Team Performance Model for managing and leading teams developed by Dr. Tim Buividas. The model suggests that Team Performance is composed of several key team components that affect team results. The components are Team Performance, Team Effectiveness, Leadership, Individual Contribution, Team Structure, and Organizational Support. The Team Assess Survey System measures these components. The Team Assess Survey System is composed of the 1) Team Essentials Survey, 2) Diagnostic Add-Ons, and 3) the 360° Express tools. The Team Essentials Survey is a fantastic entry level team survey that can be used as a stand-alone survey or with the Diagnostic Add-Ons to add greater depth. The 360° Express tool utilizes a three question open ended, stop, start, and continue approach to gather data for leaders, teams and or individual contributors.
