Surviving a New Challenge

When teams come up against new challenges, they will find themselves in survival mode. Survival mode is the state in which a team struggles to just keep its head above water. There is nothing wrong with survival mode as long as it is seen as a temporary state. New challenges seem overwhelming because the skills required to succeed are underdeveloped and the experience is not there to help the team solve the problems that come with a novel situation. Eventually great teams grind away at the new challenge by gaining the experience to overcome it.
