Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"The reader will find in this book the concepts, ideas, and practical suggestions that are necessary for any manager to have at hand if he or she is a member or creator of a committee, team, task-force, or any other activity involving collaboration among several people. The ideas are proven by several decades of experience and well-supported in the text with numerous examples. I am very pleased that Bill's pioneering work in this arena is being continued at a time when the world needs 'team building' more than ever."
—from the Foreword by Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus, MIT Sloan School of Management

"This fourth edition book by second generation authors is first rate. It demonstrates that the business context requires increased teamwork; that the composition of teams must adapt to local and visible as well as global and virtual settings; that the competencies and tools for effective teams can be delineated and mastered; and that temporary, alliance, and virtual teams can change the way we think about organizations. It is a treasure trove of ideas, tools, and examples."
—Dave Ulrich, professor, University of Michigan and partner, The RBL Group

"What an amazing gift! The 'bible' of team building has been updated and expanded. Solid theory is combined with the most practical of techniques. Practitioners of team building and OD are huge beneficiaries of this monumental work."
—Jack Zenger, co-founder and CEO, Zenger-Folkman; coauthor of the best-selling The Extraordinary Leader and Results-Based Leadership
