Team Building [in HRD].
These five papers are from a symposium that was facilitated by Susan Dougherty at the 1995 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD). "The Relationship between Productivity and Work Team Autonomy and Team Process Effectiveness" (Candice L. Phelan) reports that correlation analysis of results of a study of 21 work teams revealed a strong, significant relationship between productivity and process effectiveness and no relationship with autonomy. "A Team Assessment Instrument" (Jeff Allen) analyzes the reliability and validity of scores from a team assessment instrument, and reports study findings that indicate the reliability of instrument scores was adequate and an increase in the number of team members raised the reliability of instrument scores. "Developing a Systems Approach for Dysfunctional Teams" (David W. Wright, Paul E. Brauchle) depicts a systems model of interrelated steps that a team goes through to solve a work-related problem. "The Myth of Self-Directed Teams and the Ineffectiveness of Team Effectiveness Training: An Argument with Special Reference to Teams that Produce Knowledge" (Ann K. Brooks) argues that the failure of many teams to achieve their objectives is wrongly addressed by team-building interventions. "Successful Teams, But at What Level? An Evaluation Model of Team Success at an International High Technology Firm" (Oma Morey) examines how different stakeholders within an organization define success and develops a team success model from the literature and a case study of teams that yielded perceptions of success.
