[60 min 8 sec] – From the Alumni Conference 2011 featuring Cameron Anderson, Associate Professor, Management of Organizations Group

Business groups and teams have become a way of life in organizations. More and more, they are used to make critical decisions, solve fundamental organizational challenges, and innovate new products and processes. However, the typical team is managed ineffectively. While teams have an amazing potential to discover new insights and find creative solutions, this potential is rarely realized. In this session, Professor Anderson outlines some of the major obstacles to optimal team performance and summarizes how you as a manager can overcome those obstacles and maximize your team’s success.
