Enabling conditions for a team

There are some conditions we have to create if you want to have a group of people as a team:

  1. Person competence, you need people with enough competences, some of them complementary.
  2. Clear & defined functions, for all team guys and clear channels of communication (inbound/outbound).
  3. Authority, to decide on some aspects, features, behaviours… that provide a piece of freedom that enable them to act in their style.
  4. Resources, to be able to perform their functions.
  5. Protection, we have to protect our teams: their authority, their decisions, their delivery conditions cannot be interrupted,
  6. Control, there should be a way to check that performance of the team is right and that they are working through their goals.

There are more conditions, these are just some of the basic ones.
