Visualization provides teams with a common language and serves as a powerful tool for improving processes and communicating big picture contexts. Building on the bestseller Visual Meetings, Visual Teams offers graphic tools and strategies for creating teams and sustaining results, whether you are co-located or spread around the world. This book highlights the Drexler/Sibbet Team Performance Model, a tool used throughout such companies as Nike, Genentech, and Becton, Dickinson and Company. The model is a "map" to creating and sustaining high performance in all kinds of teams.
Some of the most creative teams in business are found in the software, architecture, and information-design professions—and the "design approach" of these teams is the key to their creativity and productivity. Visual Teams presents a "design approach" for building and leading an innovative, high-performance team.

"Visual Teams" by David Sibbet presents a fascinating way to "look" at team dynamics.
This book was great for giving ideas to how to motivate and catalyze concepts that are so pivotal to success in a good work environment.
It's also very clever how the book was written to be thought of as a "book" or a "magazine".

The quality of this book is fairly poor in my opinion. Half the key diagrams look like photocopies from the Eighties. The information provided is of dubious value. Read morePublished on January 5, 2012 by Raymond Brigleb
