The Team Diagnostic Survey (TDS) is an instrument taken by members

When team members have completed the TDS, a feedback report is
automatically generated. This report, which members can view on
the web using their Team ID and Password, graphically shows
the team's special strengths, areas where improvement may be
needed, and how the team compares to other teams that previously
have taken the instrument.
