Course 14v6 – Team Building

Published by admin on

Group
assemblage of persons or objects located or gathered together with no common goal or shared identity. An example would be a collection of strangers on a subway. They all share the common goal to reach the same destination, but they are not coordinating or organizing their individual efforts to reach this goal
Team
A group organized to work together; several parts–or people–must be positions with efforts synchronized to function in a way that produces a mutually-desired result.
Approaches to innovation & teamwork:
Conceptual, Spontaneous, Normative, and Methodical
Conceptual approach
I understand what we’re trying to do; I’ve got an idea on what to do
Spontaneous approach
Let’s get going on this; Let’s do something different
Normative approach
I’ve done something like this before; I remember what happened last time
Methodical approach
Let’s break this down; we need to look at the facts
Four Team Roles:
CARE
Creator
focuses on the possibilities and generate new ideas and fresh concepts; combine spontaneous and conceptual approaches
Advancer
focus on interaction; communicate new ideas and carry them forward; combine spontaneous and normative approaches
Refiner
Focuses on the analysis; challenge all concepts using methodical processes; conceptual and methodical approaches
Executor
Focuses on realization; follows up on team objectives and implement ideas and solution; combine normative and methodical approaches
Flexers
Flexers can focus on everything; a combination of all the other four roles; have an equal preference for most or all of the roles; makes them versatile and able to fill in for any of the other four roles that may be lacking
