It is packed with strategies for building and supporting well-managed, high-performing teams.

She does an amazing job of summarizing a vast literature of empirical research on team functioning and development into a comprehensive yet uncomplicated, straightforward guide.
"Creating Effective Teams by Susan Wheelan is the team development book that I’ve been waiting for. Easy to read and understand, it has something for everybody. For the manager, it clearly explains how teams actually work, what makes them productive and what the leader needs to do to help the team. It also includes tips on popular, but ineffective, steps to avoid."
