A major work on the concept of Teams
on 6 October 2000
To skim read this book provides only a hint of the wealth of common sense it holds. I have just re-read it, fully this time and found the details it gives are so accurate in terms of distinguishing between Groups, Teams and High Performance Teams. The concepts of Purpose, Goals and Approach are fundamental to the success of Teams and are well explained. The section on whether Teams are more effecive than Groups at the senior management level is quite enlightening. I particularly liked the stories, which illustrate the concepts and bring it to life. It is however a long read at 265 pages of what is sometimes repetitive information. But the repetition may be ncessary to bring the point home.
