In an environment of limited budgets Greek resource teams serve as a critical tool in maximizing return on investment (ROI). Finding ways to lower costs while maintaining efficiency is one of the key issues for the Hellenic Navy Logistics Command. The purpose of this report is to examine how these teams can increase their efficiency and effectiveness and ultimately achieve better financial results. The focus of this study is to identify "benchmarks" or best practices as well as diagnostic mechanisms for assessing team effectiveness, define a model of team effectiveness, analyze the determinants of high performance teams and describe their appropriate design and processes in order to be successful. The project presents the resource teams in the Hellenic Navy and two of the best practices concerning team work implemented by the U.S. Navy. The reasons that a team is the ideal organizational unit are analyzed, a review of team effectiveness models is conducted and representative models are provided. Finally, a model and a survey to assess team effectiveness; organized in three perspectives are developed. These instruments analyze the determinants, processes and design of high performance teams.
