Teamship Meter

Winning teams in sports and in organisations. A tool to develop “Teamship” – team spirit and team competence in any team in any organisation.



Win­ning teams in sports and in organisation

An organisation may be described as a “team of teams”. The suc­cess of any organisation depends on the suc­cess of each team and the teams’ ability to co-operate and support each other.

A successful team displays “Teamship”. Teamship exists when everyone in the team:

  • is capable, i.e. has the adequate skills and knowledge
  • is willing to co-operate and tobring out their best as an individual performer and as a team member
  • has the freedom to take responsibility and initiative.

This book is about how an organisation can develop and sustain Teamship and create winning teams, real teams – rather than just working groups.

It is Claus Møller's experience that organisations can get a lot of inspiration from the world of sports when it  comes to effec­tive teamwork. Much can be learned from observing all the different games based on teams be it basket­ball, volleyball, hockey, cricket, baseball, rugby, handball or foot­ball (soc­cer).

In this book we have chosen to use foot­ball as a parable.
