Pick an industry and a company within the industry. Pick a real company so you’ll have an easier time collecting data. • E.g. IT, manufacturing, banking, food, pharmaceutical, etc.
Step 2. Imagine you are a group of managers in charge of forming a new team within the company you chose. It can be any team (e.g. R&D, Accounting, Finance, HR, etc.) and you can make assumptions about its task and role. As you create this new team, apply the Model of Team Effectiveness in Chapter 5 (below).
1) You are NOT starting a new company. You’re just creating a new team within an existing company.
2) You are NOT part of this new team. You’re just the creator.
3) As you apply this model to your specific team, you may need to make further assumptions about the nature of the industry, task, group members, etc. That is fine as long as you clearly state your assumptions in your report.
• For example, a group of 10 developers in a software company making a new program for some specific target of customers.
