How to develop successful Insight teamwork

How can Insight team members work together for success?

We all know from history and experience that individuals within a sports or military team can be very talented, but that is not enough to guarantee a team’s success. 

What is true for sports and military teams is also true for teams in organisations. That is why there are so many motivational speakers from the worlds of sport and the armed services. The lessons from such speakers are relatively easy to apply to project teams where there is a clear end goal, such as building a new tower block or launching a new product.

But it’s not quite as straightforward where you have an ongoing function such as Insight. Would a suitable performance goal for an Insight team be to deliver a certain number of Insight projects, or pages of output? No!

In this guide we explore four key facets of working together effectively as a team and the implications of this for Insight teams.
