IN THIS SUMMARY

Although team is a commonplace word, a true understanding of the concept of team can be difficult to grasp. In Harvard Business Review Press’s The Wisdom of Teams, Jon R. Katzenbach and Douglas K. Smith explore the rich and diverse dynamics of high-performance teams through extensive case studies of both successful and failed teams. Uncovering both common and uncommon findings about teams in their research, the authors believe that most companies do not put the knowledge they have about team success into motion. Teams, they assert, should be the basic unit of performance for all organizations.
