By Ken Blanchard, Alan Randolph, and Peter Grazier.People in organizations today are increasingly being called upon to work in teams. More and more organizations are using teams to deal with the dynamic world of work. Unfortunately, too few people really understand how to build a team that puts into action the knowledge, experience, and motivation of its people. It is no surprise that people often give up on the idea of teams and try to go it alone. Go Team! is a game plan for building better teams.

The authors explain ways in which team members’ ideas and motivation can be harnessed and their time used to better effect. They stress the importance of information sharing to build high levels of trust and responsibility. They highlight the need for clear boundaries to create the freedom to act responsibly and the development of self-managing skills to make decisions and get great results.
