Now in its fifth edition, Team Building is a classic in the field of organization development. In this new edition, the authors strengthen the Four Cs framework that was introduced in the fourth edition and add a wealth of new illustrative examples, a chapter on the challenges of managing cross-functional teams, and a chapter on leading innovative teams in a competitive environment. To complement the text, the authors have developed two online assessments: one designed for use in the classroom with student teams and one designed for teams within organizations.

The fifth edition of Team Building provides the next generation of team leaders, team members, and team consultants with the knowledge and skills they need to create effective and high-functioning teams.
