Step 2 – Problems

You have been collaborating. As a global team. You are experiencing problems. That’s normal. As individual team members identify max. three problems. These problems exert significant influence on the team’s success. For each problem two questions:

2.1 Difference

What is the problem? Describe it clearly and concretely. It is very important that your colleagues from the other countries understand what you are experiencing.

2.2 Influence

How has the problem negatively influenced your success as a global team? If possible, try to put a number on that influence. What is it costing the team?

Finally, interact with your colleagues, in order to select the topics which the team should address. Go to the exercise Step 3 – Address.
