Over 25 years ago, Charles Margerison and I sat down to develop a language of teamwork. We were both intrigued as to why some teams 'clicked' and achieved great results whereas others failed even though they all started out with great promise. We thought that by researching teamwork we might be able to develop a model that would give teams a recipe for success.
Our early models, the Wheel twins - the Types of Work Wheel and the Team Management Wheel - are the subject of this e-book, the seventh in a series I have written to bring together all the personal, team and organizational development techniques that form the core concepts of Team Management Systems (TMS).
We are still refining our approaches and developing new models. Team Management Systems is now used in more than 100 countries and is available in 12 languages. As specialists in teamwork we are proud to have helped over three-quarters of a million people make a contribution to improved teamwork.
