Why do some teams thrive, while others struggle? In the modern workplace, employees collaborate. Managers are expected to be effective team leaders and employees are expected to be valued teammates. But many teams struggle. Being part of a struggling team can be unpleasant, but it can also hurt your career and waste company resources. In Teams That Work, Scott Tannenbaum and Eduardo Salas present the seven drivers of team effectiveness and the clearest recommendations on what really makes teams great. Applying the lessons they've learned from working with high-stakes, high-risk team situations to any kind of organization, they will dispel some of the most enduring myths (e.g., can you be both a star and a great team player?), feature the most useful psychological research, and share real-world illustrations of effective teams in action. Readers will find actionable, evidence-based tips for being an effective team leader, a great team member, a supportive senior leader, or an impactful consultant.

Get past the myths of testing in agile environments - and implement agile testing the RIGHT way. * * For everyone concerned with agile testing: developers, testers, managers, customers, and other stakeholders. * Covers every key issue: Values, practices, organizational and cultural challenges, collaboration, metrics, infrastructure, documentation, tools, and more. * By two of the world's most experienced agile testing practitioners and consultants. Software testing has always been crucial, but it may be even more crucial in agile environments that rely heavily on repeated iterations of software capable of passing tests. There are, however, many myths associated with testing in agile environments. This book helps agile team members overcome those myths -- and implement testing that truly maximizes software quality and value. Long-time agile testers Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory offer powerful insights for three large, diverse groups of readers: experienced testers who are new to agile; members of newly-created agile teams who aren't sure how to perform testing or work with testers; and test/QA managers whose development teams are implementing agile. Readers will learn specific agile testing practices and techniques that can mean the difference between success and failure; discover how to transition 'traditional' test teams to agile; and learn how to integrate testers smoothly into agile teams. Drawing on extensive experience, the authors illuminate topics ranging from culture to test planning to automated tools. They cover every form of testing: business-facing tests, technology-facing tests, exploratory tests, context-driven and scenario tests, load, stability, and endurance tests, and more. Using this book's techniques, readers can improve the effectiveness and reduce the risks of any agile project or initiative.

Much has been written about coaching individuals, yet there has been little investigation of coaching teams at work. Even in organisations that have made strides towards becoming coaching cultures, the focus has been on the individual, not the team. This failure is now a serious weakness in the abilities of managers at all levels. In this book, David Clutterbuck bridges the gap between what is known about team learning and coaching and the practical experience of managers and team coaches. He answers such questions as how team coaching differs from individual coaching, what skills underpin effective team coaching, and how team coaching can be made a sustainable, automatic process.
