Strong Organizational Support

When a team is falling short of expectations, members typically-look for causes inside the team. They often blame delays and disappointments on interpersonal tensions and conflicts. But sometimes, the cause of team failure lies outside. One common cause is the lack of organizational support. High-level sponsorship – even in the face of turnover or restructuring – is important to a team’s effectiveness.

Not all required resources can be anticipated when the team is formed or launched; so organizational support involves providing the team with the resources it needs on an ongoing basis. The team itself may ask for a particular kind of instruction or training once it is up and running. As it gets into its work, the team may need clerical and other kinds of assistance. Time is frequently a resource that teams have in short supply. Organizational support may come in the form of managers endorsing the team’s work and granting time to members away from their normal duties, without penalty.
