Requirements for teams First: Therefore, it is common to use the two words interchangeably. Teams and groups are the same. On the other hand, some other people see that the two words are not the same.
It takes a whole orchestra to play it. Luccock A synergistic working relationship is a powerful phenomenon to witness in action—people working together to consume the fewest resources possible to get the job done, while achieving a higher quantity and quality output than if they worked independently.
Sponsorsagentsand targets who achieve a high level of synergy stand a much greater chance of realizing their goals during major organizational change. Synergy between change practitioners and clients also accelerates the odds of reaching full realization.
The trouble is, many professional change facilitators lack an in-depth understanding of the underlying dynamics of how synergy works. Three Types of Working Relationships The capacity of individuals or groups to use resources time, money, materials, and human energy as a productive unit falls into one of three categories: Self-Destructive Relationships In this type of working relationship, people interact in a way that consumes more resources than it generates for the organization.
The result is less productive output than might be expected if the same individuals worked independently. For example, in some organizations, the sales and production divisions spend an inordinate amount of resources protecting their turf from one another, miscommunicating, and blaming each other.
They resemble two competitors instead of two inter-related functions within the same system. This also happens when individuals spend more time and energy in conflict with one another than meeting customer needs. They actually have a negative net production level.
To continue operating in this way, additional resources must come from outside the working relationship. If there are no excess resources to draw from, the organization suffers a resource deficit and is consumed by the drain. These relationships are also doomed because there is no means for addressing the shifting demands of the marketplace.
The relationships suffer from both inadequate output and the inability to do anything about it. Static Relationships In static working relationships, people interact in a way that consumes resources at about the same rate they are contributed back to the organization.
The result is a productive output level equal to what would be expected when two divisions or two people combine their efforts. At first glance, there appears to be no problem with this type of relationship. As long as the total environment in which they interact is essentially stable, a strong case can be made for this being an acceptable method.
Dramatically shifting circumstances rapidly creates new expectations and demands, which generate pressure on the organization and its workers to react swiftly to unfamiliar realities. Static systems do not generate resources beyond what is required to produce their product or provide their service.
They have no reserves from which they can draw to meet the unanticipated demand.
Accommodating change is a resource-consuming activity and the needed adaptation resources must come from somewhere. The only option is to pull them from what was allocated to production. Synergistic Relationships In a synergistic relationship, cooperative action results in a total effect greater than the sum of what each party could produce independently.
Different divisions can synergistically combine their efforts so that their products are ordered, manufactured, and delivered in a more efficient and effective manner than when each area works independently from the other.
Management teams can fuse the knowledge and skills of each member into an operating unit vastly more competent than a group functioning as a composite of individuals.
The additional resources facilitate change-related productivity and competence as well as create new options that were otherwise unavailable.
Synergy does not grant individuals or work teams immunity from the stress of change—it provides the optimal use of resources necessary to react to change sooner and more effectively.A Team Peak performance can be achieved if every team member knows their roles and responsibilities, takes upon themselves what is their share of the load, works at their best and furthermore.
