Partners Not Competitors: The Age of Teamwork and Technology offers a new perspective of global markets by providing insight into how teamwork gives you the edge over your competition in this technology based world. Self managed teams deliver results! This new concept is being used by senior mangers to reduce corporate costs, improve product quality, and bring products to market faster. Supported by powerful computers and electronic communication technologies, employee teams are assuming both the responsibilities and respect formally held by middle management. This book explores the relationship of teams and technology from the mid 1850s (America's industrial era) into the 1990s. A primary focus is on the knowledge-based teams of the 1980s and 90s. Why teams are becoming vital to success in high technology and information intensive businesses is discussed in depth.
