Teams: Limit management team to executive purposes

From Best Practices
Jump to: navigation, search

A management team should be used for specific purposes at the executive level, including:

  1. Problem-solving for major challenges and crises that face the organization;
  2. After Action Reviews (AAR) for overall organizational performance;
  3. Development of the strategic business plan;
  4. Review of organization performance and financials; and
  5. Implementing and communicating organizational change.

Avoid mission creep for the management team into other areas. The members of the management team are the top people in the organization and have many responsibilities, are very busy and others need their time. Use their time strategically for the most important purposes where the management team can make the most difference.
