Teams are needed because the world we live in requires constant experimentation, a continual response to changing conditions. In our exploration of new conditions and possibilities, we have to rapidly integrate new partners and different work disciplines. The team structure adapts most easily to changing conditions and has the greatest potential for creative solutions and new approaches to work challenges.

This interactive and practical course provides a successful team development process that facilitates the development of a new team, the revitalisation of an existing team or the merging of two or more different teams. Whether your team is an ongoing work group, or a special project-based team of limited duration, you will rapidly increase its effectiveness with the use of these teamwork tools and skills.
