Abstract

This gem of a book is a must for all those managers and HR professionals who are striving to improve the structure and performance of their organisations through effective team–based working. Coming from a sound academic base, it is packed with useful insights and practical advice that will make you go away and think carefully about how your organisation is working." Roger Williams, Operations Strategy Manager, United Utilities PLC <!––end––>

"Building Team–based Working is a masterful account of how to get things right. It provides tested tools to support the implementation process and maintains a crisp focus without oversimplifying. Any organisation that wants to take advantage of the power of teams, either for the first time or to revitalise teams in place, will find great value here." Rick Guzzo Ph.D., Worldwide Partner, Mercer Human Resource Consulting

"Building Team–based Working provides clear, practical steps for organisations seeking to establish a team–based approach. The specific issues of how to achieve it, why it is required, what to do to get there, when to do it and roles and responsibilities are clearly covered. The strength of the book is its ability to set out clearly the role of the leader on one hand and on the other provide detailed questionnaires to give a framework for managers to follow to deliver team–based working." Jo Moran, Programme Manager, Marks and Spencer

"The book provides a comprehensive guide behind the concepts of Team Based Working. It links the theory to a practical guide to implementing Team Based Working and its potential role in developing high performing organisations." Peter Colclough, Chief Executive, Torbay Primary Care Trust
