Book Description:

Based on rigorous research evidence, this text provides all the tools necessary to help teams overcome difficulties, including case studies, discussion questions, exercises and questionnaires.

From the Back Cover:

More organizations than ever before have come to the realization that effective teamwork is essential to success. Yet businesses still find that the reality of working in teams is fraught with psychological barriers and practical difficulties. Utilizing the most up-to-date research evidence, the third edition of Effective Teamwork provides business managers with the necessary tools to build and maintain effective teamwork strategies in order to maximize efficiencies and further their organizational objectives.

Psychologist and business expert Michael West provides an in-depth examination of the range of positive and negative factors that can affect team functioning. Reflecting the newest developments in the field, the third edition features new chapters on top management teams and virtual team working, as well as increased coverage of such areas as team appraisal rationale, training for team working, 'shared mental models,' dealing with typical failures, and contributions of positive psychology to effective teamwork. Consideration of ethics and values in team functioning—a theme that emerged during the recent financial crisis—is also incorporated into all chapters.

With its clear insights and careful balance of rigorous science with organizational practicalities, Effective Teamwork is an invaluable guide to the establishment and maintenance of effective management teams today.
