By Warren G. BennisThis is a collection of stories of the critical issues of the 21st century for managers. The book focuses on “collaborative advantage” by turning individual talent into teamwork. It captures the spirit of discovery that pervades “Great Groups”. It describes the free-form organization of such teams, more interested in their mission than their hierarchy. The book also illuminates the roles of a “Great Group” leader as a gatherer of talent, a source of inspiration and a bridge to the outside world.

Today, organizations require creative thinking from every member, not just a few. People must learn to work together, to identify their own missions, to form their own “Great Groups”.
