MIT's Sloan School of Business published data in their 2016 Digital Business Study on team culture, alignment and a range of other data points.
View the report for yourself and see if it doesn't reinforce the idea that organizations are evolving into more self-directed, high-performing, data-driven teams, and "teams of teams".
There is a wealth of information on leadership, managing change, and alignment.
A few highlights:
- When it comes to leadership, vision and forward-thinking, and the ability to change are considered top skills.
- "Maturity" is characterized by some interesting team culture traits. These include clear measures of success, and whether they are "distributed" vs. "hierarchical". Mature organizations are bold, data driven, and nimble. (Think: measures of success and processes to learn and stay aligned).
