Assessing and improving the health of teams
Teams are what drive an organization, and our research shows that accelerating teams deliver the best results. Heidrick & Struggles research found that accelerating teams delivers 22.8% greater economic impact than derailing teams.
A number of factors can prevent teams from delivering maximum value: inflexibility, unclear goals and accountability, and micromanagement are among the most damaging ones.
The Heidrick & Struggles Team Accelerator Questionnaire (TAQ) provides an understanding of where your teams stand and the areas needing improvement to accelerate performance. Armed with insights from the assessment tool and understanding of the drive factors associated with accelerating teams, you can ensure your teams are operating at peak performance.
