Publisher: Cengage Learning
Edition: 1 - 2003
Becoming a Team puts the ideas, advice, and tools students need to successfully enter the workplace where employer demands "to work as a team" are intensifying. This text blends the latest research on "teams" with an assortment of assessments and exercises. Central to its approach is the requirement that students actively participate in class teams that form for the duration of the course. Roy Herrenkohl's, teaching experience in Lehigh's Business School's Executive Education courses led him to develop a course on "Teams" - a course based on student needs and one which has been taught in a variety of subject areas including business and engineering. In addition to teaching, he does research on teamwork and employee empowerment and also program evaluation research assessing the impact of educational, social and industrial training activities. Becoming a Team: Achieving a Goal will be a valuable resource for teachers and students alike in many arenas in which teamwork is taught and practiced.
