thewalkinggirl on LibraryThing 5 months ago
Even though this book was only published four years ago, parts of it already seemed very outdated. Part of it could be the perspective that team organization is a new thing (which it may have been at the time of writing) but I think it could also be attributed to too much detail in some of the articles in terms of technical specifications and vendor/product names.Despite that, there were a few articles that stood out to me. In terms of content and writing style, I would say that "Letting Go: A Reflection on Teams That Were" by Lubans is well worth the read. Also, Norman's "When Is a Team Really a Team?" and the articles in part 2 (Effectiveness of Team Structure) are worth taking a look at.
