Team Alchemy™: Enabling High Performing Teams

A model to measuring and enhancing team effectiveness

Today’s teams can’t wait around for the magic to happen. They need a reliable framework for turning potential into progress. Team Alchemy helps uncover the mystery behind high-performing teams. Starting with inquiry and analysis, Team Alchemy surfaces actionable insights that help spark authentic conversations, allowing teams to seize new opportunities.

Propelling teams toward their full potential
When teams want to shore up success conditions or take the next step in their evolution, it’s not always obvious where to start. Should they align on a vision? Secure additional resources? Establish more defined R&R? With so much at stake and so many variables to consider, teams need a reliable and holistic framework for assessing and improving their performance.

Taking the guesswork out of team effectiveness
Developed as a natural companion to Business Chemistry and The Cause Effect, Team Alchemy leverages scientific inquiry and human engagement to help teams tackle their biggest business challenges.

Combining scientific inquiry with human engagement
Team Alchemy asks teams to assess their own context and composition. Using analysis specific to each team’s inputs, the Deloitte Greenhouse evaluates the responses and applies learnings to help identify the team’s strengths and opportunities. We highlight how teams can remedy gaps, leading to productive conversations in which teams can address their most critical issues—the ones that are readily apparent and the ones that linger under the surface.

The Deloitte Greenhouse empowers teams with customized, actionable insights they can adopt to achieve performance breakthroughs.

Being able to see all the feedback and discuss it was awesome. The framework allows you to quickly lead a team to think big and generate ideas on how to drive change, which is table stakes for strategic planning.
