Create a power point presentation on Approaches to Creation of Teams
Scenario: During the onboarding experience, Daniel Chinn shared with all of the managers the two most important and most difficult management tasks when leading virtual global teams: trust and communication. What is the best approach to create a team. He himself would say he still struggles
with this even though he has led many global teams. Of the jobs you could possibly fill for
the company, all will have the global team building as a crucial part of leading.
Despite the lack of technology currently used in PRU’s production processes, Chinn
realizes that the quality control of the products and personal attention to its production
makes the overall product more appealing to customers. PRU has gained an image of
high quality that is superior to those methods used in China or other production sites. He
would like to develop a team that will analyze those factors that work well in PRU and
determine how these could be implemented in other divisions in the company. He would
like the first team to begin with Shanghai and Richmond workers.
Chinn is tasking all new managers to explain their approach to creating the team and
preparing the team members for the first meeting. This should demonstrate the
manager’s understanding of high performance teams, roles/norms/practices of
successful teaming, and anticipated challenges to mitigate. In doing so, the ground work
would be laid for trust and collaboration within the new team. He would like this detailed
in a five-slide PowerPoint presentation.
