In this unique resource, leading team and organization design experts Susan Albers Mohrman and Allan M. Mohrman, Jr., guide organizations systematically through a proven process for becoming team-based.

Nine modules walk you through each step in the process of tailoring designs to suit your organization’s specific needs and environment.

Using the worksheets, exercises, and examples provided, you:

  • Design team structures
  • Determine management and leadership roles
  • Set direction across the organization
  • Build a framework for decision making
  • Create appropriate communication norms
  • Fashion performance management and improvement processes
  • Charter the teams you have set up

An excellent companion to the Mohrmans’ Designing Team-Based Organizations (with Susan Cohen), this workbook is an invaluable resource for managers, leaders, and design teams seeking to organize themselves for optimal team and organizational unit performance. A Leader’s/Facilitator’s Guide, available separately, details how to use the workbook with design teams.
