Once you have agreed the team objective, and you all know what it is you need to achieve, the next step is to allocate the right work to the right people.
We know that a successful team needs access to all nine Belbin Team Roles, the nine distinct clusters of behaviour that were identified during the seminal research carried out by Dr Meredith Belbin and his team, over many years at Henley Management College in the UK.
But which of these behaviours does each team member have as a strength? Where can you best use them? Where are their weaknesses? What other talents might they be able to develop for the good of the team?
Introducing the Belbin reports. From Individual to Team, Working Relationships to Jobs.
Used by organisations world-wide to help their teams become high-performing. Belbin is the gold standard language of teams, world wide.
The Belbin Individual report analyses an individual’s contributions in terms of the nine Belbin Team Roles, offering advice and guidance on how they might work best, announce their preferences to others and cultivate latent talents.
The Belbin Team report assesses how a group of individuals will work together as a team, detailing who can take on which role within the team, and where there may be gaps or overlaps in behavioural contributions.
The Belbin Working Relationship report identifies key differences in behavioural tendencies between two people. It promotes productive partnerships and pinpoints potential areas of conflict.
The Belbin Job report defines a specific job in terms of Belbin Team Roles. This report is created when a manager or recruiter completes the Job Requirements Inventory, a special questionnaire designed to find the most important aspects of a job.
The Belbin Job Comparison report analyses the demands for a particular functional role alongside the attributes of an individual being considered for the job, to determine their suitability – perfect when recruiting or for assessment centres.
