Shows how working as a team up and down and across the organization promotes value and serves customers, creating and maintaining a competitive advantage in the intensely competitive global marketplace. Integrates research findings into a framework that will allow you and your associates to develop the priority, foresight and skills to work as a team, providing an ``ideal'' for productive joint work, steps to structure teams and suggestions on how to tailor teamwork principles to fit your circumstances. The first section describes the teamwork model (ideal), the theory and research that support the model and some popular alternative frameworks. It then discusses team potentials and pitfalls, successfully arguing that the team is vital to continuous improvement and innovation, and provides the ingredients for creating a successful team. Shows how the team organization model can be applied to the organization as a whole--and how crucial this ``integration'' is today.
