Studies have shown there are differences between high performance domestic teams and international high performance teams. Today’s companies are looking to develop teams into international high performance teams. If we look at a successful domestic company with a blueprint for high performance teams, this company will find itself challenged in an increasingly international workforce. High performance teams are essential for organizations because they can drive companies’ success.
This project presents characteristics of different types of teams (domestic and international) with the purpose to build and improve the performance of an international high performance team. This project was chosen because HR departments will need to understand the skills necessary to create high performance international teams and design HR practices and culture to be successful in the new global economy.
