The move to teams has largely failed, say Harvey Robbins and Michael Finley, mainly because teams themselves are failing to think through the human implications of teaming. The New Why Teams Don't Work is a handbook for team members and team leaders to maintain the highest possible level of team intelligence-the skills, attitudes, and emotional flexibility to get the most out of a team's inherent differences. Describing what teams are really like, not how they ought to be, the book teaches people how to work together to make decisions, stay in budget, and achieve team goals. Robbins and Finley show, for instance, how to get hidden agendas on the table, clarify individual roles, learn what team members expect and want from each other, choose the right decision-making process, and much more. Updated throughout, the book includes completely new material on team intelligence, team technology, collaboration vs. teamwork, team balance, teams at the top, the team of one, plus all new and updated examples.

Trade unions in Britain have experienced a major decline in membership over the past decade. From being important agents in British society, they are increasingly marginal to political action and work. Major legal and political constraints on their activity, changes in the nature of work and workers, and declining effectiveness have meant that they no longer occupy centre stage as they once did. This book brings together authoritative accounts of the nature and meaning of trade unionism in the workplace today. It examines the beliefs and practices of union memebers in differing forms of employment, as well as analysing the non-union firm and the issues of collectivism and individualism in these settings. It critically engages with new management philosophies such as HRM, and new union ideas, such as partnership unionism. Based on primary research into the new workplace in today's Britain, this book will be required reading for those wishing to obtain a critical understanding of collectivism in the workplace today. The future strategies of British trade unionism are also examined amid contradictory forces of exclusion, incorporation and renewal. The editors have gathered together contributions from leading academics who have systematically explored the nature of new industrial relations and new management philosophies and trade union responses.

The central assumption that guides this book is that research and practice about learning at the workplace has recently lost its critical edge. This book explores what has happened to workplace learning and organizational learning and studies what has replaced it. In addition, the book discusses to what extend there are reasons to revitalize it. Today, themes such as ‘innovation’, ‘co-creation’ and ‘knowledge sharing’ seem to have become preferred and referred to as theoretical fields as well as fields of practice. In several chapters of this book it is argued that the critical power of learning could be regained by starting a new discussion of how these new fields of practice can be substantiated by topics such as learning arrangements, learning mechanisms, and learning strategies. Hence, the aim of this book is to both advance and recapture our knowledge of learning in today’s increasingly complex world of work and organizing. The contributions in this work do so by revisiting classic research on workplace and organizational learning and discussing how insights from this body of literature evokes new meaning. It sets the stage for new agendas and rethinks current practices that are entangled in activities such as innovation, co-creation, knowledge sharing or other currently widespread fields of practice.
