What good and bad software teams believe differently
Previously I have discussed The beliefs of High Performing Teams (HPTs) and shared the results of a research project on the beliefs of HPTs in a major software organisation. I now invite the SPICE2006 participants and other software engineers to participate in the next stage of this research.
What I would like you to do is to share (anonymously if you like) what you consider the beliefs were in best and the worst software teams you have ever been in.
This will help us to see the difference, if any, between what good teams and bad teams believe and whether there are critical beliefs which make the difference.
This is a 3-6 months project – I want to gather as many inputs as I can - results will be published on www.bioteams.com .
If you include your email in your entry I will ensure you are also sent a summary of the completed findings when they are ready.

Teams, networks, groups and their members behave in an irrational way but quite predictably so. A good team leader will understand this and use it to everyone’s advantage. One key point is to knowing each team members motivations and whether they are operating in “social economy” or “market economy” mindsets.
