From consulting firms to steel workers, most work groups would benefit enormously from developing better teamwork, but making it happen isn't easy. Excerpts from Collective Excellence: Building Effective Teams, published by ASCE, describes the benefits in improved productivity, coordination, schedule maintenance, cost control, work quality and individual satisfaction to be gained from better work team development; the reasons that few work groups are developed to anywhere near their potential; common characteristics of effective teams; and the importance of appreciating diversity among team members.
