No single factor has more predictive power for the success or failure of projects and programs than the health of the team working on it. The 4D-System was developed in over the past 20 years, by Charlie Pellerin, leader of the team that built the Hubble Space Telescope and a dozen others with impressive backgrounds in Lockheed Martin and NASA to: assess, quantify and develop specific improvement plans for technical teams made up of scientists and engineers. 4D has been in use for the past 20 years (since 1993) in more than 75 countries, with over 1,800 teams, and thousands of individual team members. The strongest testimony to the effectiveness of the 4D-System is that many of these teams have used the system for years and continue to use it, because it works.
The majority of team building material on the market is either so esoteric that it is difficult to create a real action plan out of them or is so touchey-feely, that it could never be used with hardcore technical professionals. When you look into the 4D-System, you will be happily surprised to find a practical, easy to use, quantitative approach that is fast and efficient. The best way to learn about 4D is to read the book, “How NASA Builds Teams” (http://amzn.to/14tFtXq) and to take the free Team Development Assessment at http://www.nasateambuilding.com/ or email your team’s email and names to 4D(at)whitewaterprojects(dot)com and we can get your free team assessment setup.
