Define How Your Team Will Work: Four Key Considerations

Here is another valuable Management Tip of the Day from Harvard Business Review. To sign up for a free subscription to any/all HBR newsletters, please click here.

Most team leaders know to help their team define goals, but the conversation shouldn't stop there. You also need to agree on the mechanics of how the team will get the work done. Here are four issues that need to be clear on every team:

1. Roles and responsibilities. Every member needs to know their tasks and how their work will contribute to the overall goals.

2. Work processes. You don't need a notebook full of procedures, but agree on how to carry out the basics—such as decision-making or communicating.

3. Rules of engagement. Establish a constructive team culture. Discuss the shared values, norms, and beliefs that will shape the daily give-and-take between team members.

4. Performance metrics. How will you measure progress? Define the measures for meeting the goals, and the consequences for not meeting them.

Today's Management Tip was adapted from "For Your Team's Success, Remember the How" by Linda Hill & Kent Lineback.
