Extreme Teaming provides new insights into the world of complex, cross industry projects and the ways they must be managed. Today’s global enterprises involve collaborative work by teams of experts operating across different countries, technologies, and industries. Amy Edmondson and Jean-François Harvey show through their analysis of contemporary cases how the complex demands of collaboration impact on management and revolutionize our understanding of teams.
The book contains powerful insights and guidelines that allow managers to bridge professional divides and organizational boundaries to work together effectively. This is a new exploration of the challenges involved with teaming across firm/industry boundaries, from one of the world’s leading expert on teams.
The authors demonstrate that the work done in the modern organization is less about looking inward and creating strong teams inside the company, and more about teaming across boundaries – which often are in flux.
Extreme Teaming is a must-read book for all course modules on leadership, open innovation, collaboration and teams, and project management.
