Organizations of all kinds are recognizing the value of empowering employees through teams, and this book provides the frank answers to questions about how they work, what makes them effective, when they are useful, how to get them going, and how to maintain their vigor and productivity over the long haul. Drawing on a survey of over 500 organizations and an in-depth study of 28 companies, the authors provide a blueprint for successful self-directed teams, offering advice on overcoming the organization's initial resistance to change, selecting team leaders and team players, defining roles, and training the team.

Reviews - What do customers think about Empowered Teams?

Book Falls Short  Mar 31, 2006
Among the books I have read about teambuilding, this is not one of the better ones. If an organization is seriously considering moving to a self-directed work team environment, I can see this book being helpful. However, for those who are simply reading the book to expand your own knowledge base, you will most likely find that you will learn little. This book contains little more than common sense solutions that can be reached without investing the time and pain necessary to read the entire book. Anybody with an education in management and/or experience in the management field will gain little from this read.
Helpful resource in developing effective work teams  Sep 16, 1999
Of the many books written on the subject of self directed work groups, this is one of the better efforts. In the course of providing the information necessary to implement self directed teams, this book helps point out the pitfalls your organization may face and provides potential solutions. When consulting with organizations on their process improvement efforts, reorganization and teamwork often become issues. This book is one of several that have helped me to assist my clients in addressing those issues. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me -
