Other factors that could keep teams from developing, or from performing
effectively, are mentioned by Richard Hackman, (Teams that Work, and Teams
that Don't). HE calls them trip wires. Let's see if I can remember them
- Put people in teams but deal with them as individuals.
- Fall off the authority balance: either way too much lee way given to
the team, with little guidance or orientation; or too much control and
- Assume that people know how to work in teams, or that they will learn as
- Assign the task to be perform by the team, but fail to provide the support
they need to do it.
There is one more, but I can't remember it right now.
