Strategic Management of Teams "Those companies that learn the secrets of creating cross-functional teams are winning the battle for global market share and profits. Those that don’t are losing out." —Business Week It’s no secret that alternative teams are increasingly recognized as a highly effective means to improve quality and operational efficiency, decentralize authority, and motivate workers at every level of an organization. Less well understood, and rarely touched upon in the literature, is the fact that cross-functional teams are highly versatile strategic resources and key elements in the design and execution of strategic management initiatives. In this book, noted author, scholar, and authority on team management, David Cleland, demonstrates that alternative, cross-functional teams are both critical to the management of change within an organization and building blocks in the design and execution of product/service and process strategy. He explores specific aspects of strategic team management and provides clear, concise recommendations on the design and implementation of team-based strategy. Topics of particular interest include: Identification and discussion of alternative uses for teams in dealing with product/service and process changes within the organization Using teams to encourage cross-functional and cross-organizational focus in the use of enterprise resources How teams can enable everyone in the enterprise to participate in the design, development, and implementation of strategies that will make the organization more competitive How the strategic use of teams changes organizational culture Coping with the negative aspects of teams How the use of teams has created "Teamocracy"—an organizational design driven by operational and strategic teams Strategic Management of Teams is must reading for managers in industry, government service, or any large organization that must adapt continually to technological, economic, and social change. It is also an indispensable resource for students in industrial engineering, technology management, and business administration who wish to enter the job market armed with the very latest in management skills.
