For innovative goal, compose your team of members who are dissimilar to each other

· team

When you are asked to compose a team, there are a number of things to consider.

>The size of the team for example.

  • More team members provide more resources, but also need more management.
  • Think about it, it takes more time to give feedback to 10 people than to 3.
  • Moreover, it has been found that larger groups tend to be less productive than smaller groups.

>Furthermore, it is important to have people in your team that can do the job.
So you need to select team members who have the skills that fit the team goal.

>Productive tasks:

  • You might be looking for individuals who all have eye for technical details, and are accurate and flexible.

>Creative tasks:

  • You might be better off with a collection of individuals that are different.
  • Men and women, young and old, who are from different educational, functional, or cultural backgrounds, and who have different skills.

>Team performance rather than individual members performance:
That is, one way to compose a work team that performs better than its individual members,
is by selecting individuals who are not similar to each other.
