For more than 30 years, the Team Effectiveness Profile (TEP) has helped teams eliminate or reduce blockages in the 5 vital areas of team activity: Mission, Vision, and Goals; Team Roles; Operating Processes; Interpersonal Relationships; Interteam Relationships.
- Identify issues that block effectiveness
- Reduce or eliminate problems that can drain a group’s energy
- Maximise the group’s productive efforts
The Team Effectiveness Profile focuses on the 5 Categories of Team Effectiveness. The first 4 of these categories are based on those presented by Richard Beckhard in Organization Development: Strategies and Models (1969). Interteam relationship theory is the basis for the fifth category.
5 Categories of Team Effectiveness
- Mission, Vision and Goals
- Team Roles

- Interteam Relationships
What to order: You will need 1 paper or online assessment per participant. For maximum benefit, purchase 1 Facilitator Guide per trainer.
How It Works
The TEP has been designed to function as a self-administered learning instrument. The TEP yields an overall Team Effectiveness Score as well as separate scores for each of the 5 areas indicating the general health of the group and blockages that hinder team effectiveness.
Uses for the TEP
Appropriate for any type of team and all levels of team members and leaders, the TEP can be used as a stand-alone instrument or as a component in a larger team-building programme. The TEP can be used to:
- Measure pre-team building conditions
- Orient new teams to potential problems
- Unblock struggling teams
- Determine post- team-building results
We recommend administering the TEP periodically, as issues will change over a period a time.
