I have been managing international teams on global improvement programmes for FTSE and Fortune 100 companies for the last 10 years or so, and have a pretty good grasp on managing productivity from myself and teams of up to 100 - but still loads to learn.

Got my Prince2 foundation, and familiar with it through various public sector contracts.

I am a long term member of Mensa, the high IQ society, and head up two professional bodies in Scotland: ISACA and the Institute of Information Security Professionals.

Have founded two consultancies, and run large teams for two global professional services firms - so have an excellent view of the balance required at both ends.

Tend to look at the bigger picture, rather than the benefits of a specific tool.

comment Tools to represent skills in a graphical way with rating
This chart is a very small sample of a particular organisation's competency matrix, and behind each one of these are the expectations in that skill. For your specific requirements you'd need to have a competency framework covering those skills, and listing what you would expect in a 1 rated as opposed to a 4 rated person - then you would have something to compare with.

BROY - as it stands, this question is offtopic as per the faq however there may be a question in there around identifying motivators in different situations - which could be on topic. If you can edit to bring it on topic we can always re-open questions.

Alternatively, if managed well, it can help a whole class pull together and build a strong cohesive team...

+1 for peer review. This also gives the students proof reading experience, which can help them analyse their own work for errors.
