Being part of a self-directed work team requires flexibility, innovation, and an understanding of key attributes of each team member. Prior to deploying a newly formed team, it makes sense to train them and provide them with tools for effective self-management.
The following is a summary of what we will learn in this module:
• Team effectiveness factors
• How to assess staff skills and matching the right person to the right work assignments
