The Six Dimensions of Winning Teams

Working Paper
In this working paper, the authors present the six dimensions that are needed to manage a team for high performance. They argue that these six dimensions can be decomposed into three levels: the collective team level, a level of diverse dimensions specific to subgroups of team members, and finally, the individual team member level. The authors further argue that these dimensions are interdependent, and need to be managed for alignment, starting with the highest-level dimension, which pertains to the goals and objectives that lie at the heart of team management and performance. The authors further relate this new model of high-performance teamwork to the existing literature and illustrate its power and ease of application through a number of examples.
