Book Summary
ABSTRACT
Based on their many years of experience, LaFasto and Larson believe that this transformation from individual work to teamwork and collaboration is driven by a growing complexity of the world and its problems that increasingly require the diverse perspectives and coordinated efforts of many. The authors also believe, based on biological and anthropological research, this kind of teamwork is made possible by the fact that the human being&x2019; s capacity for collaboration is steadily evolving. When Teams Work Best (an extension of the author&x2019; s original best-selling work, TeamWork: What Must Go Right/What Can Go Wrong 1989 ) seeks to address these problems and deficiencies as they are understood and experienced in real collaborative situations.
