Team Performance, Productivity and Rewording Teamwork
Module 2 focuses on performance, productivity, and rewarding teamwork. Based on your understanding, discuss the following:
Define ‘team productivity.’
As a manager, how will you measure your team’s productivity?
What conditions have to be in place for a team to be productive or successful? Who is responsible for each of these conditions?
What are some threats to productivity?
As a manager, If one of your teams is very productive, what rewards are available to reward the team?
Can you classify types of rewards and tell when each should be used? (Example, monetary rewards vs. non-monetary rewards) (two examples of a non monetary reward are a simple thank you, and a preferred parking place.)
Read and respond to your classmates’ posts. See class posting/discussion requirements.
Be sure to support your work with specific citations from this week’s Learning Resources and any additional sources.
Read a selection of your colleagues’ postings.
Respond to at least 3 your colleagues’ postings in one or more of the following ways:
• Ask a probing question, substantiated with additional background information, evidence or research.
• Share an insight from having read your colleagues’ postings, synthesizing the information to provide new perspectives.
• Offer and support an alternative perspective using readings from the classroom or from your own research in the Walden Library.
• Validate an idea with your own experience and additional research.
• Offer and support an alternative perspective using readings from the classroom or from your own research in the Campbellsville University Library
• Make suggestions based on additional evidence drawn from readings or after synthesizing multiple postings.
• Expand on your colleagues’ postings by providing additional insights or contrasting perspectives based on readings and evidence.
Return to this Discussion several times to read the responses to your initial posting. Note what you have learned and/or any insights you have gained as a result of the comments your colleagues made.
