Abstract:

There is no doubt that working through teams can be an effective way to accomplish tasks in an organization. As Mike Woodcock and Dave Francis point out, though, it is by no means the only one. Managers concerned with human resource strategy cannot afford to assume that teamwork will always be the best option. A number of questions need to be asked before any decision is made. Among these questions are the following: What should be the focus of our organization development interventions? Should we undertake teambuilding initiatives? How extensive should the teambuilding initiative be? What resources will be need to support our teambuilding initiative? This book provides a framework within which these questions may be addressed. It presents a structured approach to analysing the key issues, including a series of questionnaires and activities designed to guide the reader through the key strategic decisions that must be taken by any organization contemplating a teambuilding programme. The authors, two of the best known specialists in the field, examine the benefits and dangers of teambuilding as an organization development strategy and offer detailed guidance on further information and resources. This book, a radically revised version of the authors' Organization Development through Teambuilding, will be of enormous value to HRD and OD practitioners.
