Belbins deconstruction of the team into nine team roles will be a familiar concept for managers and management trainers across the world and understanding how the different team-roles work together, to optimize efficiency and effectiveness, is something many managers will have been tasked with in these financially constrained times. Authored by Meredith Belbin, who undertook the original research into team roles, this 2e offers a distillation of a great deal of new practical experience gained by interviewing and working with hundreds of teams worldwide, therefore providing great insight into best practice for applying the original theory. Now fully updated for todays managers and students Team Roles at Work takes the academic background of the team roles method and offers a more practical approach with a new structure and visual aids such as tables, illustrations and graphs to ease learning. Team Roles at Work offers managers a practical guide to improving their teams within the workplace to deliver significantly better results for their company, reflecting well on them as a manager, while also saving them time and energy, by using each team member to their best advantage to achieve overall team goals.
