Online team assessment: free bioteams tool released
I am pleased to announce the release of a new Flash-based Bioteams Instant Team Assessment tool which provides an online snapshot of how much a team is operating like a bioteam by calculating its bioteams footprint across 5 key areas: beliefs, leadership, connectivity, execution and organization.
This assessment is based on the answers to a set of simple multiple choice questions which also instantly identifies the top priority bioteams rules which the team would have to address to become more bioteam-like in its operations.
The tool can also be used educationally as a bioteams simulator to introduce and explore the bioteams concept by changing a teams answers (behaviors) and seeing instantaneously how each change impacts the teams bioteams footprint and profile.
