Developing and Enhancing Teamwork in Organizations

Today's team-based organizations face an unprecedented range of challenges. Many teams reflect the diversity of its members which vary in experience, education, and training. To add to the complexity, teams often include people who are not in the same room together, are geographically dispersed, and are connected only by electronic media.

Developing and Enhancing Teamwork in Organizations is a volume in the SIOP Professional Practice Series that brings together leading edge practitioners and academics who share their knowledge about effective teamwork. The book contains evidence-based guidelines designed to offer practitioners advice, recommendations, and strategies for developing and sustaining teams that consistently function at peak performance.

With contributions from leading experts in the field, this important resource covers team-based performance approaches from a wide range of activities and industries. For example, the volume explores team work in the NASA organization supporting astronauts, superior performance in football, and also in the military and industry. In addition, the contributors include information concerning healthcare organizations and their delivery of vital services. Each illustrative example reviews the lessons learned and the principles and the findings that were most influential when composing and managing a particular work team.

International in scope, the volume clearly shows what it takes for team-based organizations to excel in the 21st Century.
