How a team culture fuels high performance
A Formula One™️ team has to design, manufacture, develop and operate a high performance vehicle which combines technologies from aerospace, automotive and ICT. Compliance is essential, so too ensuring that the cars are safe, reliable and high performing. Deadlines cannot be missed; the Grands Prix which comprise the FIA Formula One™️ World Championships represent series of non-negotiable deadlines.
Team work is key; the top teams have 1000 staff, only 10% of whom attend the races, so the high performance team work starts weeks, months and years before an event in the research & development facilities and factories where these fascinating Formula One™️ machines are developed. Trackside, the high performance team work continues, perfectly exemplified by the pit crews who can execute precision pit stops in 2 seconds.
Developing the right team behaviour and culture is a key focus for the leadership teams. This means ensuring that everyone is accountable, takes responsibility and understands the importance of avoiding silo-mentality and embracing cross functional communications.
Alignment behind the team's strategies and ambitious goals is a vital, so too having the agility to flex strategy in the face of constant changes in technology and the performance of competitors.
