Welcome to the Competence Center for Top Teams CCTT’s portfolio of activities, spanning academia and practice, generates new knowledge on individual and team behavior to enable effective top teams. The Competence Center for Top Teams (CCTT) is an initiative of the Research Institute for International Management (FIM-HSG) at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. CCTT’s cornerstone premise is that well functioning, highly motivated and cohesive top teams are essential to achieve the objectives and performance demanded by successful organizations and projects, both new and established. As teams interact over time, they develop particular dynamics and ultimately a “team personality”. We use this knowledge in the St. Gallen Top Team Approach to enhance the effectiveness of teams through an increased awareness of the behavioral aspects supporting decision-making. We aim at top management, entrepreneurs and boards, to affect high-performance and value creation in organizations.
