Does your organization rely heavily on work teams to drive business results? Or do you rely on groups of people who aren’t really functioning effectively as teams? For most organizations, the latter is the norm and their efforts to improve teams have faced multiple obstacles, including competing learning and business priorities.

Boca Raton, FL — June 24, 2021

Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent HCM research and analyst firm, is launching a new study to identify what leading organizations are doing to improve team development, which has gained importance over the past year as employers adapted to a more dispersed workforce and ongoing disruption.

“The future of work will be transformed through dynamic teams. Not the kind of teams most organizations have now, but agile, multi-generational, multi-cultural teams where everyone will lead or follow depending on the work or task and the synergies required for success,” Brandon Hall Group Senior Vice President and Principal HCM Analyst Claude Werder said.

Real teamwork is counter-intuitive to people who were trained to be self-reliant and competitive. But the future of work requires high-performing teams. Organizations must develop teams that:

  • Have goal-focused individuals with complementary skills.
  • Collaborate and innovate through shared leadership, open communication and conflict resolution.
  • Have clear role expectations.
  • Possess a strong sense of accountability and trust among its members.

“Are you ready for the future of teams? Are you developing skills and competencies required for reimagined teams to adapt at the speed of business?” Brandon Hall Group CEO Mike Cooke asked rhetorically. “Teams will form and disband more rapidly as business needs change and team leaders will have to collaborate, flex their styles and relate to a wide range of people, and have team members prepared to do the same.”

Brandon Hall Group’s new team development research will uncover leading practices for developing the teamsof tomorrow. Brandon Hall Group will generate reports and tools to help employers create the competencies and team dynamics that will drive success as organizations continue to adapt to the evolving business environment.
