This book is about increasing team performance. It focuses onbuilding system dynamics models when tackling a mix of interrelatedstrategic problems to enhance team learning, foster consensus, andcreate commitment. The book is intended to be applied in theorganizations of today. As the "command and control" organizationevolves into one of decision-making teams, so these teams havebecome the critical building blocks upon which the performance ofthe organization depends. The team members face an increasedcomplexity of decision making with the interrelation of severalstrategic problems. What this means is that people have differentviews of the situation and will define problems differently.However, research shows that this can in fact be very productive ifand when people learn from each other in order to build a sharedperspective. Learning in this way might prove to be the onlysustainable competitive advantage for organizations in the future.As a result, team leaders want to create "learning teams" and areconfronted with issues such as how to:
* create a situation where people doubt their ideas rather thanstubbornly cling to dearly held views
* create a learning atmosphere rather than trying to "win" thediscussion
* create a shared understanding of a problem in a team
* foster consensus and create commitment with a strategicdecision
* facilitate Group Model Building
Those who will benefit most from Group Model Building: FacilitatingTeam Learning Using System Dynamics are those who are familiar withsystems thinking or organizational learning, or those who areworking in groups and are coming up against the commondifficulties.
