However, there is another very important task that faces the teamone that is often overlooked or ignored.The final stage in the team process introduced in Module 1 was “Closure.” In this module, we will explore the process of closure and examine the steps that teams should take to assess what worked, what didn’t, and what needs to be improved for more effective and efficient teamwork in the future.

This may take place spontaneously in co-located teams, but it is especially important to formalize these procedures in virtual teams. Even co-located teams can benefit from a planned and conscious evaluation of their work product and process.There are a number of tools that can be used to evaluate the performance and process of a team. The following reading describes several such processes.

One way to do this is to develop an action plan to help concretize improvement goals and determine what steps need to be taken to achieve them. An effective action plan will include a timetable and realistic, clearly defined steps that the team can take to enhance performance. This plan should be reviewed periodically to assess progress and results.The following article is no longer in print, but is used by the authors permission.
