Are you frustrated by these common problems?
-Lack of a source of motivation common to millennials and boomers alike
-Teambuilding exercises that fail to produce lasting results
-Groups that isolate themselves in specialty silos
-“Job description myopia,” or employee inability see the bigger picture
-Organization charts that fail to show how work gets done

Business Models for Teams helps you solve these problems. In fact, it may be the last teamwork toolkit you will ever need!

Most leaders make the mistake of over-relying on verbal and written communications. But that approach is outmoded in today’s systems-driven world. Using the same visual tools that made Business Model Generation and Business Model You so successful worldwide, Business Models for Teams lets you visually depict how any team really works — and how each person fits in.
The Business Models for Teams toolkit provides the missing half of teambuilding, plus a research-based engagement method that works for employees of all ages. You will discover how to fix job-description myopia and how to accurately depict where work truly gets done: in the “white space” of organization charts. Business Models for Teams imparts must-have operating acumen, whether you work in business, government, or the not-for-profit world.
