4. Belbin – the way forward for innovation teams

This research has the purpose to investigate how the Belbin Team Roles methodology explains how Innovation Teams in a Research and Development (R&D) environment accelerate their innovation process through better teamwork. The approach for this research is to use the results of 730 respondents of the Belbin Team Role Self-Perception Inventory and the experience of delivering 68 Belbin feedback sessions where teams received their Belbin Team Result. This research confirms that all individuals and teams have their own specific mix of Belbin Team Roles and consequently each team has a unique team innovation culture and climate. What the teams do have in common, is that the team members all benefit from knowing each other’s Belbin Team Roles and the effect of their own roles on the teamwork.

5. BELBIN TEAM ROLE THEORIES By Peter Mackechnie, sourced from a number of articles

Some organisations are quite prescriptive when building teams and will use team role theories to ‘build’ what they believe is the best performing team for a particular project. A widely recognised team role theory was suggested by Belbin in 1981. Belbin believes that each of us possesses a pattern of behaviour that characterises one person’s behaviour in relationship to another in facilitating the progress of a team. Dr Meredith Belbin defines a team role as: “A tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way.”

10. EFFECTIVE TEAMWORK: THE KEY TO SUCCESS

Effective teamwork is an important aspect of any organisation’s success. There are many benefits of teamwork, most notably, an increase in motivation from your employees. A recent study by Stanford University showed that when people are treated as partners or team members – even when physically apart – their motivation increases.
