There are amazing examples what even newly created teams can achieve if they have the right support on a continuous basis: In 2012’s Tour de France Orica-GreenEdge debuted, as the SkyTeam did in 2010, winning the Tour. “It was difficult to select the final nine,” said Sports Director Matt White. “We have more than nine riders that are ready for the Tour de France. It’s a good problem to have. When picking the team, we have to identify the team goals and pick the best riders to achieve those goals over the three weeks.”
In order to accelerate the team development process and to optimise it where necessary, teams should be supported professionally. Especially during the initial formation, the team is tentative, both in terms of relationships with each other and in terms of performance.
When an organisation has highly motivated, effective teams managing various aspects of its business, the benefits to the organisation are enormous both in the tangible and intangible space.
Investing in your teams can make the difference between you and your competitors.
