The domains of an Effective team
Middle Circle® for Teams team effectiveness model is based upon four inter-linked domains: ‘Fundamentals’; ‘Individual Behaviour’; ‘Team Dynamics’, and ‘Conditions for Work’.
These domains are:
- Fundamentals: the critical, ‘must have’ elements that enable a team to be eﬀective
- Individual Behaviour: how individual team members behave as they carry out their team roles.
- Team Dynamics: how team members behave towards one another.
- Conditions for Work: the climate that is created by the team and the conditions that are in place for the team to carry out its work.
These four domains measure 14 drivers of team effectiveness.
