    A reviewer

    Patrick Lencioni wrote this as a follow-up to his 2002 ¿fable,¿ The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. It applies the earlier book¿s concepts, and suggests many exercises, approaches, examples and explanations you can use as you apply those ideas. If you found the first book useful, you¿ll want this one, though you can still get a lot of utility from it even if you haven¿t read the original. Lencioni recaps his concepts clearly here, including developing trust among team members and keeping teams focused on their goals. The result is broadly applicable. We believe that readers who want a basic introduction to improving team function will appreciate this book. That said, those looking for more complex or theoretical approaches, or for tools to deal with specific challenges, such as knowledge management among teams, may need a more advanced manual.
