Why Teams Don't Work
IN THIS SUMMARY
We learn why the illusion of the team vehicle has created confusion, personality conflicts and slowed progress in Why Teams Don’t Work. The authors examine the team myth and offer practical tools and insights about teams - the obstacles preventing them from achieving their potential, and suggestions about how to effectively remove these obstacles. What makes this book special is its focus on the subtle human factors of teamwork. The authors propose that people really want to work productively together but teams are messy. They provide new hope for those who have failed in implementing the team process by showing that the concept of teaming is not the problem-human nature is.
