Reviews - What do customers think about The Performance Factor: Unlocking the Secrets of Teamwork?

Teamwork. . . detailed  Nov 3, 2006
MacMillan's text helps readers see the benefits of working in a team oriented environment. The Performace Factor is nothing to write home about and doesn't really shed new light on the academic discussion of administration. If you are new to the concept, then maybe this text is for you, but if you are well read in the field, this will probably only be interesting as far as the story of the airplane crash is concerned.
 
Landmark Book and so current!  Sep 3, 2006
I came across this book in 2006, 5 years after its publication. Yet it is so current - the described characteristics of a high performance team help me apply immediately in a real world and global project environment. Using Flight 232 as a story line help us mentally linked to the principles and make the book an interesting read. The "Team Wheel", "Message to Team Leader", Figures and Diagrams are all very useful. Highly recommended for anyone who had or had not read "The Wisdom of Teams".
 
Great Book! Great Wisdom!  Sep 15, 2001
Pat MacMillan is one of the top consultants in the USA to Fortune 500 businesses and non-profit organizations. In this book he gave me, for under $20, thousands of dollars of help for my own personal "team building" challenges, and those of my own consulting clients.

Unlike some business books, this one is readable and helpful at the *personal* as well as the organizational level. There is, quite simply, a truck-load of wisdom and counsel in this book.

No Other Book Like It!  May 3, 2001
This book on teams is the best I have ever seen on the subject. The author retells the story of United Flight 232 throughout the book to make his points. It brings the principles to life in a very real life way. The "team wheel" and the chapters on the qualities of a high performance team are worth the price of the book alone.

This book would be of real value to anyone leading a team. It would be an especially good resource for consultants as well. Lots of graphs and diagnostic tools make the book feel like a library of resources.

On a personal note, there is a lot you can apply to any set of relationships where you are on a team. I learned a lot about being a husband and dad just reading it!

 
Create Synergy  Apr 3, 2001
For the past 2 years, I have used Pat MacMillan's principles to impact organization's greatest assets, their people. The Performance Factor is the heart of these principles and I have watched as organizations applied them. Synergy was created, i.e. 1+1= 3,4,5. These principles work, regardless of what culture you are in, for I have taught them in North America, UK, Asia, South East Asia and Thailand. It is simply the best investment you will ever make for the success of your organization.
