Step 2 Using the master list, ask the team to rate where they expect to be for each attribute. this creates a target for the team.

Step 4 combine these results and review with the team. during the review of results it is not unusual to find that team members have very different views of where the team is. the results may also be considerably different to the targets previously established. identifying these differing opinions early will help the team to address them quickly and avoid potential conflict later on. as managers of project teams, we need to find out what makes the people in our team tick for the benefit of the individual, the team and, ultimately, the project.
