This profiling exercise is an effective way to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of a team. Above all it helps the team to understand ways in which it could improve performance.
Assessment of team role
Developed by Meredith Belbin in 1981, following nine years of study and has become one of the most accessible and widely used tools to support team building. The team roles were designed to define and predict potential success of management teams, recognising that the strongest teams have a diversity of characters and personality types. It gives an insight into the working of the team and identifies the team strengths and weaknesses.
Belbin describes a team role as "a tendency to behave, contribute and interrelate with others in a particular way." There are 3 action oriented roles - Shaper, Implementer and Completer Finisher; 3 people oriented roles - Co-ordinator, Teamworker and Resource Investigator and 3 cerebral roles - Plant, Monitor Evaluator and Specialist. The 9 team roles are summarised in the table above.
