Competence Centre for Top Teams

Welcome to the Competence Centre for Top Teams at the University of St. Gallen!

As part of the Research Institute for International Management (FIM-HSG), we focus on investigating critical dimensions and drivers of high-performance teams, or “Top Teams”. Our cornerstone premise is that sustainable and highly motivated teams are essential for organisations to solve the grand challenges they face today.

On this website, you will find all about who we are and what we do, as well as how we answer questions such as:

  • “What are high-performance teams?”
  • “Why are high-performance teams important?”
  • “What do high-performance teams do differently?”
  • “How can high-performance teams be created?”

Our mission is to conduct academic research to enhance our understanding of high-performance teams. For this, we support clients by offering sound analytics and insights to create high-performance teams. Further, we create an environment that attracts ambitious, young researchers and invest in their development.

To keep our focus on providing value to our clients and advance as CCTT, we have established guidelines when collaborating with clients and during our daily work:

  • We prioritise our clients.
  • We identify the conditions, processes, and leadership that allow teams to flourish.
  • We leverage sound, academically rooted methods and insights to create value for our clients.
  • We strive to be a high-performance team.

On this website, you will find all about who we are and what we do. Also, we will keep you up-to-date on the latest opportunities at CCTT and provide you with information material outlining everything you need to know about us and our service offerings.
