Measuring Team Performance by Steve Jones and Don Schilling (2000) describes a step-by-step, customizable process for managers, facilitators and team leaders. It describes how to develop group-level measures that align with business strategy and customer needs. The measures can be used as a basis for problem solving and process improvement. The book also describes how to attach financial incentives to the measures. A CD ROM disk is included that creates a spreadsheet for the measures. Worksheets at the end of each chapter walk a team through the steps for developing its own measures.
