Abstract

The key features of the Air‐crew Team Management Workshop, designed for and in consultation with Australian Airlines, is described. The programme was decided on to introduce special training for crew members on teamwork issues, given the evidence that human factors are a major cause of aviation accidents and are regularly mentioned in incident reports. The design and development of the programme are examined, followed by an evaluation and assessment.

Abstract

In mid‐1984, the authors were commissioned to assist in the design of a programme to improve flight crew functioning in Trans Australia Airlines — a major Australian domestic carrier with over 600 active aircrew flying Fokkers, Jetstreams, DC‐9s, Boeing 727s and 737s and the Airbus A‐300. Research and consultation with the airline identified factors such as teamwork, resource management, and communication skills as critical to effective crew performance. Breakdowns in these same three areas are regularly cited as contributing factors in the 65–80 per cent of aviation accidents or incidents attributable to the human factor.

Abstract

Effective team management can be the difference between success and failure in business. The article describes the authors' work in various wealth‐producing organisations which led them to produce a new approach to bring about more effective teamwork. The authors developed a type of work model to enable team leaders to draw a profile of how they see their team and its members in terms of the work they like to do. People have different work preferences which can be determined accurately by the Team Management Index (TMI). The TMI has been found to be a valid and useful measure of team preferences — hence an aid to improved team management.

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.

Abstract

Posits that quality performance requires a team effort and that success depends mostly on an individual′s ability to manage people as well as materials. 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.
