From the Back Cover
Lead a very special kind of team. The virtuoso team.
At the heart of a great change or creative breakthrough you will often find a dynamic team of inspired individuals who work together to break out of the commonplace and make something remarkable happen. A team that generates more creativity, more energy and the very best performance. The rules of the game are different for virtuoso teams and their leaders. From transforming jazz music to triumphing in polar exploration, they can explode work as usual if let free to make it happen.
This book will show you how to play to the standards of some of the greatest uncompromising, creative and catalytic teams of our times.
"I never thought I would be extolling the virtues of a book on Virtuoso Teams unless it specifically pertained to baseball. Nevertheless here I am praising a book on the advisability of developing Virtuoso Teams regardless of the type of organization in which you belong.
If you aspire to develop an organization of high-performers or take an organization of high-performers to an even higher 'next level' Andy Boynton and Bill Fischer's Virtuoso Teams is a definite must read!
