Building Great Teams

Great teams make the difference between success and failure, between big opportunities and stagnation, between having fun together and dreading work. Many of us have been on great teams and not-so-great teams. While they’re easy to identify once they’re running, building and running a great team might seem like a magical game of chance. Great teams can be planned and designed, however.
