Abstract:

This is a book about those revolutionary teams that are catalysts for big change and breakthrough performances. Unlimited by the conventional approach to teamwork, virtuoso teams are frequently contentious and always less comfortable, but if you can pull together the right people and manage them in the right way, the results can be extraordinary. Virtuoso teams don't last forever, but their members almost always go on to become leaders in their field's next generation. Whether you're launching an innovative new product or service; entering into challenging new markets or simply trying to transform the way you operate, [this book] can make the difference between achieving a high-impact success and just another modest outcome. In [this book, the authors] introduce [the reader] to some of the most compelling and wide-ranging stories of remarkable team leadership ever assembled.-Dust jacket.
