The Work of Teams

By Jon Katzenbach

The Work of TeamsManagers are seizing on teamwork as an easy solution for meeting aggressive goals, only to meet with  frustration when their teams prove difficult to predict and control.

In The Work of Teams (Harvard Business School Press, 1998), Jon Katzenbach gathers together articles from the Harvard Business Review that address the challenges and rewards that await every successful team.

This collection examines the conditions that encourage – or inhibit – the work of teams, and offers guidance for overcoming the problems that can derail even the best work groups.
