When work teams can’t meet reasonable performance expectations, the problem often turns out to be that the members can't work together in honest, trusting collaboration. As authors Stefano Mastrogiacomo and Alex Osterwalder and designers Alan Smith and Trish Papadakos explain, teams are productive when their members feel psychologically safe and work cooperatively toward a common goal. To facilitate productivity, make sure your work-related activities align, so everyone knows who does what. This practical guide full of often amusing sketches and charts will help anyone who runs a firm, leads a project or works in a team.
