Use this common team building, enterprise-wide team management system to achieve strategic objectives through better teamwork.
What is the Enterprise-Wide Team Management System (TMS)?
An enterprise’s Team Management System (TMS) aligns all teammate attitudes and work behaviors, which ensures everyone is doing their part to achieve the company’s vision, mission, and strategic goals.
In this system, Right-Minded Teamwork is the standard team building approach.
Likewise, team facilitators will use the 12 Steps in How to Design a Right-Minded Team Building Workshop as the common facilitation process that implements Right-Minded Teamwork in TMS.
As a result, implementing both programs almost guarantees your success.
Find out how you can deploy the TMS in your organization.
In this guide, you will find 30 pages of detailed instruction as to how to set up and roll out your organization’s Team Management System.
How does Team Management System work?
TMS is like your employee performance management system, just on a team level.
Instead of individual performance evaluations, every team in the enterprise sets performance goals that align with the strategic objectives.
Every quarter, each team measures its actual results. After that, the enterprise publishes the organization’s improvement results.
What are the benefits?
As a result, every team in the enterprise operates with clarity and focus. Therefore, the enterprise consistently achieves a higher percentage of their strategic goals year over year.
How long does it take to see the benefits?
During the first six months, the TMS program is an expense. After that, it will begin to pay for itself.
Furthermore, your TMS will report consistent and demonstrable enterprise-wide results within twelve to eighteen months.
