Atmosphere This is sometimes called the culture of the team and is defined by how it feels to be in the team. %

Communication This is a critically important dimension and is related to the flow of information and the volume of information that people have to do their job. Do people know what is going on? %
Direction Effective teams have an internal organisation that enables members to sustain performance by enabling them to use the team strengths well whilst compensating for areas of development. %
Objectives This dimension refers to the teams purpose. People need to have a clear understanding of both what the mission is and also what it means to the team members on a day to day business. %
80 - 100 An area of considerable strength.  This team is outstanding in this area and other teams should be looking to this one as a model to learn from.
59 - 79 An area of strength that the team should capitalise upon.
42 - 58 Area that although not a significant weakness for the team is also not a strength.  Overall team performance may be advanced appreciably by addressing this area.
