The Organizational Team Process Questionnaire™ (OTPQ)

The Organizational Team Process Questionnaire™ is a derivative of the Global Team Process Questionnaire™. Its form, function, and purposes are in all respects similar to those of the Global Team Process Questionnaire™, except it has been designed to work with teams that are not global or multicultural. It is therefore suitable for all uses with teams that are located within a single country or that are not culturally diverse. In certain cases (for example, with an expatriate team made up of members from a single culture), it may be suitable for other uses.

Clients typically utilize this instrument for one or more of the following purposes:

  1. Repeated applications with a single team over time (typically three to six months between each application) so that the team leader or a facilitator can report on the team's progress toward specific process goals (better communications, clearer understanding of objectives, roles and responsibilities, etc.)
  2. Comparing a team or teams' results with benchmarks developed by ITAP International for teams in the same industry
  3. Comparing teams within the same company with benchmarks developed through the team process questionnaires within the same company
  4. Developing metrics so that team effectiveness may be compared across the same division
  5. Comparing process to output measures to determine in what ways improvement in teams' functioning affects outputs

The administration of the Organizational Team Process Questionnaire™ may also be a part of a Team Analysis and Performance Improvement approach to teams.
