Toady's companies are fast turning to teams as a means of organising and doing work. In theory, teams increase productivity; they improve communication; they make better use of resources; they are more creative and more efficient at solving problems, they make and implement higher-quality descicions. In reality however, many companies and managers have found teams prone to problems that make them ineffective. Teams become confused about goals; they have a difficult time making descicions; individuals don't accept their roles; team members often aren't rewarded appopriately, and team leaders don't always act like one. Packed with practical questions and answers about teams, this award-winning bookidentifies the obstacles preventing teams from achieving their potential and suggests ways to remove them.
