Developing efficiency within teams: best practices

Teams within organisations all want to achieve certain goals, with the least possible expense (resources, personnel, time and energy). The key to doing so is to ensure that the processes are focused on the right things and working relationships are efficient. If there are issues surrounding the two, processes and relationships can become inefficient. This will not only negatively impact employees, but also the organisation.

Once a year critically assess the way teams operate. Conducting such assessments will prevent teams continuing to work in inefficient ways and will help bring the required new approaches.

Evaluate which roles employees are in. In order for an efficient team to be in place, it is essential that jobs and tasks match people’s strengths. Avoid having employees doing work that lies far from their skill set, as this only hinders how efficiently tasks can be completed.

Take the time to clearly explain why certain investments cannot be made. When employees are given timely explanations, their level of frustration often decreases.
