- 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?
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.
