'A team is not a bunch of people with job titles, but a congregation of individuals, each of whom has a role which is understood by other members. Members of a team seek out certain roles and they perform most effectively in the ones that are most natural to them.'
Team Roles at Work is a follow-up to Belbin's highly successful book Management Teams: Why They Succeed or Fail. The nine team roles, now familiar to managers and management trainers all over the world, are explored further, adding value to the
original team-role concepts. Operational strategies are laid out which provide ideas, techniques and a new range of information and advice which can be used to the organization's advantage.
Team Roles at Work paves the way for all those in management education, including industrial trainers to put Belbin's seminal thinking on teams into practice.
