Think about a time when you’ve been part of a really successful team project. Even after you consider the individuals’ skills, success comes down to team dynamics. There’s a reason that we say “a champion team will always beat a team of champions“. High-performing teams deliver the best results.
While there are obviously many factors that influence team dynamics, getting team collaboration right is critical. The cost of poorly performing teams can quickly get out of hand, studies find that employees waste 31 hrs (or approximately four days) every month in unproductive meetings1 and spend 61% of their time managing work rather than doing it!2
Despite advances in software, equipment and management practices, actual workforce productivity has remained stagnant for 5 consecutive years and is still directly correlated to the number of hours worked3.
