CAMP: A simple but effective model for building high performing teams

I would like to share with you a very simple model I use for helping teams become more High Performing which addresses 4 key aspects of teams - Communications, Alignment, Meetings and Support ("CAMP").

Each key aspect of CAMP is further broken down into 4 key areas as summarised in the diagram:

Also I can offer a free on-line tool which allows you you to conduct an instant health check of your own team using the CAMP model.

One very important thing about team improvements is to realise is that you cannot just make team improvements in a random sequence or you will just create chaos, overwhelm and confusion rather than improved performance.

This is why I have embedded within CAMP a 3-level maturity model of my suggested sequence for making your team improvements.

For example, Operational Meetings happen much more frequently than Strategic Meetings.

Therefore in CAMP operational meetings are a higher priority than strategic meetings because they provide a solid platform to allow other improvements to be made later.

There is also a comprehensive business simulation game (CHAPTER) which teaches CAMP experientially to a group of up to 20 team leaders or prospective leaders using a realistic 10 person team scenario which can be completed in a morning or afternoon.

The techniques experienced in CHAPTER can then immediately be applied to the participants own teams using the models, forms and tools provided as part of the simulation.
