Examine team purpose — Struggling teams frequently do not have a common goal. In addition, the team purpose may not be perceived to have any significance in the organization and can therefore be problematic. Look for members who do not appear committed and thus miss meetings or fail to produce their work product.
Review the legitimacy of the goals — Quite often dysfunctional teams focus on the wrong goal and/or have a goal that is too broad or narrow. This often leads to frustration and a lack of focus. Review the team goals for breadth, scope and appropriateness. Refine things as necessary.
Assess the mix of members — Determine if you have the right people on your team with the right skills. Some people are better at the ideation and creativity stage while others are more effective at the implementation stage. Determine if there are any challenges with the mix of members.
