Strategic management of teams

It's no secret that alternative teams are increasingly recognized as a highly effective means to improve quality and operational efficiency, decentralize authority, and motivate workers at every level of an organization. Less well understood, and rarely touched upon in the literature, is the fact that cross-functional teams are highly versatile strategic resources and key elements in the design and execution of strategic management initiatives. In this book, noted author, scholar, and authority on team management, David Cleland, demonstrates that alternative, cross-functional teams are both critical to the management of change within an organization and building blocks in the design and execution of product/service and process strategy. He explores specific aspects of strategic team management and provides clear, concise recommendations on the design and implementation of team-based strategy
