why team alchemy?
Having used several models to develop successful teams and team work over the years, I welcomed the introduction of the Team Alchemy system in 2011 because it provided me with a comprehensive, analytically robust, and eminently practical approach to team development that focuses on high performance linked to business results. The external stakeholder feedback, and internal survey have already allowed me to assist a diverse range of teams in New Zealand and Australia to gain a much deeper understanding of what is really happening both within and outside their ‘walls’, and what will really make a difference in their quest for high performance . Team Alchemy’s ability to benchmark team performance against other teams, to measure progress through the development of action plans, and to then re-survey team performance has proved to be a particularly attractive feature of the system.
