Team Next is about your next team, it's about innovation and it's about being agile in your approach. Building an awesome team requires patience and continuous effort. Great teams happen over time, but they don't become amazing unless you establish a proper foundation for growth. The goal of this book is to provide concepts and benchmarks that relate to the configuration and performance of agile innovation teams within an organization. The insights in this book can be used by team managers and organizational leadership to enhance the innovation process, with specific focus on establishing continuous improvement practices, pursuing rigorous innovation plans and establishing greater adherence to an agile innovation process. This book contains over 60 charts from an exclusive U.S. workforce survey on team dynamics and the innovation process. Sample charts include: - Figure 16: Summary of Communication Flow Factors - Figure 30: Autonomy of Decision Making for Important Decisions, by Team Size - Figure 39: Use of Special Teams to Address Innovation Challenges, by Organization Size - Figure 45: Perceived Organization Strengths and Weaknesses Related to Process - Figure 58: Personal Approach to Innovation and Risk Acceptance Profile
