Abstract:

Each project in the Marine Corps Task Analysis program is assigned to staff members, organized to form a work-team. Their continuing performance, as an effective team, is crucial for success of the project. This Training Manual provides guidelines for effective teamwork and work-team maintenance and development. Chapter I, the major portion of the Manual, begins with an explanation of the major obstacles to optimal team performance and describes methods using the tool of intervention for diagnosing problems in work teams, with explanation of such specific techniques as goal-setting, action-planning, the organization mirror, force analysis, and business games. Chapter I also outlines methods and techniques for achieving organizational change and improvement, with special attention to conflict resolution, role reversal, and team development. Chapter 2 of the Manual explains management by objectives as an integrated system for planning and achieving effectiveness in teamwork. Chapter 3 discusses how use of the matrix organization may offer advantages as an alternative to the traditional organizational pyramid. Included is an annotated bibliography of books and other published materials dealing with organization maintenance, development, and teamwork.
