Editorial Reviews

Review

"Combines the concepts of work teams and empowerment."

"The most complete treatment I've seen on the subject.... If you're making the move to self-directed work teams, this is the book to read!" (Chuck Day, editor-in-chief, Industry Week)

From the Inside Flap

Provides the frank answers to questions about how teams work, what makes them effective, when they are useful, how to get them going, and how to maintain their vigor and productivity over the long haul. Draws on a survey of over five hundred organizations and an in-depth study of twenty-eight companies (conducted jointly by Industry Week and the Association for Quality and Participation).

12 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Adam Lefton on September 16, 1999
Format: Paperback
Of the many books written on the subject of self directed work groups, this is one of the better efforts. In the course of providing the information necessary to implement self directed teams, this book helps point out the pitfalls your organization may face and provides potential solutions. When consulting with organizations on their process improvement efforts, reorganization and teamwork often become issues. This book is one of several that have helped me to assist my clients in addressing those issues. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me - adamleft@webspan.net.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Amy on March 30, 2006
Format: Paperback
Among the books I have read about teambuilding, this is not one of the better ones. If an organization is seriously considering moving to a self-directed work team environment, I can see this book being helpful. However, for those who are simply reading the book to expand your own knowledge base, you will most likely find that you will learn little. This book contains little more than common sense solutions that can be reached without investing the time and pain necessary to read the entire book. Anybody with an education in management and/or experience in the management field will gain little from this read.
