Free High Performing Teams Instant Healthcheck Tool Spreadsheet
An important free tool which I provide with my new book 'A Systematic Guide to High Performing Teams' is a Team Process Health Check Spreadsheet written in Microsoft Excel. The spreadsheet allows you to rapidly assess each of 16 important team process elements on a scale of 0-3 ranging from 'totally absent' to 'present and effective'.
The results are shown graphically as a bar chart (summary level) and a spider diagram (detailed level).
The spreadsheet also allows you to record your action priorities (1-3) for each of the 16 process elements which it then compares automatically with a team process maturity model described to give you a good indication of whether your proposed sequence of process improvements makes actually sense in terms of best practices. You can also customise and extend the tool.
