Building High Performance Teams

Teams come in many shapes and sizes, but they all have one similar overarching objective: to produce outstanding results collectively, collaboratively, on time and under budget. Organizations have been working on building high performance teams since the time of the pyramid builders, but the science and art of high performance teams took a quantum leap in the second half of the 20th century with the advent of quality circles, matrixed teams and lean systems.

In the 21st century, the challenge for teams has been compounded by the need to operate effectively within today's do-more-with-less VUCA environment (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity).
