Abstract

An analysis of the practical application of the Team Management Resource designed by Charles Margerison and Dick McCann in the Training Agency (formerly the Manpower Services Commission) is represented. The results represent the completion of the instrument by 855 managers in the Commission and compares these results with those produced by Margerison and McCann for a wider, more general sample of managers. Several differences are noted between the two samples and some possible reasons for these differences are proposed. The article samples were obtained principally during training events (normally Team Development, although the instrument was administered during developmental events) and suggests implications for trainers and training in its use.

Abstract

Why is Team Management Important? Success or failure in business is a result of whether people work together effectively in teams. Some organisations have a very good record in teamwork. These include companies like Shell, Citibank, Hewlett‐Packard, IBM as well as smaller organisations. When we look at the performance of the major Japanese companies over the last 30 years we again can see the amazing results of effective teamwork. Names like Sony, Hitachi, Toyota, Nissan, NEC, Honda and others have swept to world leadership in their industries. We can only conclude they are doing something very effectively.

Presents the Margerison‐McCann Team Performance Index (TPI) as a means to measure this. Concludes that the key to using the TPI is in self‐assessment. States that the TPI focusses people on team tasks rather than individual agendas which leads to success owing to the teamwork that results.
