“True genius resides in the capacity for evaluation of uncertain, hazardous, and conflicting information.” – Winston Churchill
Where are we? Where should we be?
Evaluation is more than just a phase of planning methodology. It is critical to ensuring on-going team success.
The headlong rush by a team to deliver on targets or goals may entail lots of enthusiasm, passion and commitment. However, this energy, determination and action of team members—while suggesting great focus and progress—may well be serving to undermine team performance and relationships.
- This “team mindlessness” is most likely a result of a lack of evaluation of:
- what is being done,
- why it is being done and
- how it is being done
