Team Management Profile
Assess work preferences in team context. Explanation of Team Management Profile of Margerison and McCann. ('88)
What is the Team Management Profile? Description
While the traditional unit of appraisal in an organization is the individual, increasingly the focus is on the team to get things done. The Team Management Profile, -Wheel and -Index (™) from Dr Charles J. Margerison and Dr Dick J. McCann constitute a method particularly useful for assessing work preferences in team context, and can also be used for assessing individual and organizational preferences.
The Team Management Profile Questionnaire is "a 64 item normative, forced-choice instrument which measures work preferences along the four key factors of relationships, information, decisions and organization. The scores on these constructs are then mapped on to the Team Management Wheel resulting in a major role preference and two related roles".
According to Margerison and McCann Types of Work Model, in general 9 essential team activities can be distinguished:
Environments where diverse thinking is encouraged are believed to be conducive to innovation and finding better solutions.
Work preferences are measured in four main ways. First, preferences for
extroverted and introverted work. Second, the balance between practical and
creative work. Next, the influence of analysis and beliefs in decisions. Fourth,
the extent to which you want to work in a structured or flexible way. These
factors combined have a powerful influence on job choice, job satisfaction,
motivation, teamwork, learning and development, and career moves.
This provides 8 team role preferences that people can perform in the Team Management Wheel (fig):
The Linking Role is shared by all team members. Work preferences
reflect the psychology of the emotions and desires that you and others bring
to the job. Where there exists a low alignment, or mismatch, then people tend
to either adapt the job to their preference, or move to another job.
Origin of the Team Management Profile. History
The study of group dynamics began after the end of the Second World War. The terms teams and teamwork, although common in sport, did not become commonly used within organizations until the 1970s. Work Preferences has links to the theory of Carl Jung on Individuation and Peter Drucker on developing personal strengths in the work context. It is the alternate to Type Theory, where assessments tend to stereotype people. Work preferences reflect choices that people make, rather than being stereotyped.
