Expert insight interview with John and Amy as they go over the following points:

  • We going to talk about Amy’s book Teaming – how organizations learn innovates and compete in a knowledge economy which one of the most important subjects.
  • Today, everything is so specialized that when you come to approach a project or a business initiative, the chances are you don’t have all the skillset within your organization and you don’t even need them on a full-time basis. This is the reason why you will witness the mixture of teams of full-time contractors are very fluid. What are Amy’s views regarding the same?
  • As the nature of teams evolves, organizations faced a lot of challenges which is an interesting phenomenon. How do organizations need to evolve to be able to leverage the team in a new and more fluid way?
  • With time, teaming has become more critical because you can be teaming with the people of the client, consultant and multiple people internally. It may be a group-sell so the whole concept of teaming in sales is becoming more prevalent than ever. What does Amy think about the same?

Extreme Teaming:

Today’s global enterprises increasingly involve collaborative work by teams of experts operating across different professions, organizations, and industries. Extreme Teaming provides new insights into the world of complex, cross-industry projects and the ways they must be managed. Amy demonstrates that the work done in the modern organization is less and less about looking inward and creating strong teams inside the company, and more about teaming across boundaries – that often are in flux. With the help of practical guidelines, the managers are allowed to bridge professional divides and organizational boundaries in order to work together effectively, this is a new exploration of the challenges involved in today’s global enterprises.

In the book, you will learn more about things like building an Engaging Vision, Cultivate Psychological Safety, Develop Shared Mental Models, Empower Agile Execution, The Challenges of Extreme Teaming, and a lot more.
