MarcumSmith: Team Dynamics, Team Communication, Team Development The Team Dynamics Assessment measures how capable teams are to make the leap from good performance to great. The assessment is based on the bestselling work of Catalyst creators David Marcum and Steven Smith. Rather than assess performance on a 1-10 scale and leave it at that, we dive deeper on specific team behaviors that are habits, and when the best habits aren't in play what you're team is doing instead. Team dynamics are the unseen, but not unfelt, forces that impact a team. But most teams aren't great. We ask questions about team relationships in this survey that no one else asks: How often do people talk at the water cooler rather than in the meeting and why? We all talk about these things at lunch or over coffee, so we might as well get it on the table and do something about it. Click the "Create a new team survey" button and find out exactly where your team stands.
