One of the most important books ever written about teams, the original edition of this groundbreaking book helped pioneer the self-directed work teams revolution.Now, drawing on a wide range of real-life lessons learned in the years since it was first published, this up-to-the-minute guide teaches you everything you need to know to lead confidently and effectively in today's non-autocratic, self-directed workplaces.
