High Performing Teams
The Team Assessment Survey

The Team Assessment Survey (TAS) was designed to provide team leaders and members with feedback on the seven critical components associated with high performing teams. Using the Rocket Model© of high performing teams as a framework, the TAS is based on an extensive review of the team literature and field testing of several versions of the survey between 2001 and 2003.

Teams using the TAS can range from 4-25 people. The current version has been in use since 2004 and has been used with hundreds of teams in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Users of the TAS include:

  • Medical teams
  • Hospital administration teams
  • Sales Teams
  • R&D teams
  • IT project teams
  • Public Education Administration Teams
  • Legal Teams
  • and Numerous Management and Executive Teams Across a Variety of Industries

The TAS consists of 35 items; the on-line surveys take less than 10 minutes to complete.  The corresponding 20 page TAS Feedback Report provides detailed item- and component-level feedback, team member dispersion ratings, and suggestions for improvement for each of the seven components of the Rocket Model.

The cost of the TAS is $50.00 per team member.  This fee includes the administration of the TAS and creation of electronic copies of the TAS feedback report.  Bound, color copies of the TAS Feedback report cost an additional $10/report plus shipping.
