Please use this table to plan and report on how you will develop the working capacity of your team, explaining how you will do this.   (Each area below must be explained)Methods and techniques, you would use    What you are hoping to achieve by doing this   (likely outcomes)  Give reason for each of your actions.     (Why do you think this will work?)What time frames you are allowing for this to be achievedExamples of types of documents that might be used     (procedures, policies etc.)What will you do if these measures do not work?   (Contingencies)
  The various stages of team development             team roles and dynamics  Organize informal meeting   and establishing clear roles and responsibility to each member                                                 Get to know each other better, trust one another and work towards a collective decision. To resolve these organizational problems by having a quick response to the obstacles like lack of good relationship among members.Informal meetings will take approximately one year with employees meeting on a monthly basis.Such meetings will not require any documents like minutes since employees will be inform of a gala meeting but with strict policy that each member must be available whether junior staff or senior managerIf the informal meetings fail to address the relationship issue, then I will organize formal meetings mandatory for each member to express his or her views regarding their work experience.
Skills/ competency analysis  Conducting job and work analysis including requirements for performing the workTo identify core skills and behaviours needed to perform the roleCompetency mapping will make it easier for our firm to identify qualified staffs, assess their performance, focus on training efforts thus enhancing overall productivity. This will be achieved within one and a half years since it includes giving employees time to improve.Training manuals, interview question papers, questionnaires, psychometric tests tools among othersInstead competency mapping fails I will give all my staffs timeframe for improvement failure to which they can look for work somewhere else
The need to link team’s goals with organisational goals, KPIs and individual performance measures   the importance of agreed goals  Employing performance management programTo increase productivity and profitability through salesMaking sure that all employees are doing the right thing that advances the organisation’s purpose through its goals and aspirations. To analyse how best the company is achieving its stated goals and objectives.The technique is an annual performance review processThe program must follow the procedures such as; it must have a scope, purpose, overview, and procedures such as supervision, performance review process, rewarding employee performance, schedules among others. There must be employee’s files showing his work record and performance.Performance management is an annual process that if it fails I would try to make it an ongoing process and to encourage the managers to start coaching the employees and provide feedback on a consistent basis by supporting the conditions and behaviours for high performance.
Strategies to encourage input into planning and decision-making  This will involve participatory management, high conceptual level process, prudent consensus approach and vigilant decision management    To encourage personal and mutual accountability, collective work products, for team members to think strategically to reach the greatest quality solution for a complex team problems and minimize the risk failuresThese are to make the team members to learn from doing. Meaning, all employees must participate in decisions that affect the future of the company production and sales of our products. All members must have weight in decisions affecting inputs and planning processesIt does not have a time frame but must be measured at all levels of any input planning decision making procedures It may involve planning handbooks for team members, price list, market niche documents, work delegation materials and expectation outline requirement handbooksChanging the employee’s ideas about management takes time just like a total cultural change. If that fails I would employ some leadership styles such as from democratic to autocratic leadership style for a while to deal with long time employees who are the subject of resistance to change by making them free to leave if they can embrace such changes.
The need for performance evaluations/ reviewsDesigning ranking methods for team members, critical incident method and graphical scale evaluation programTo evaluate each team player as to his or her inputs and outputs in their area of expertiseThis will help in comparing the performance of all employees simultaneously and to get broader picture of the areas where team members needs improvement and to come up with recommendations on where they need supportThe approaches will run for one yearCharts showing each workers performance, records of sales by each employee and a list showing each employees good and bad incidence in the field.If the strategies fail, I will try other methods such as the checklist evaluation methods and the 360-evaluation technique.
