Teams are critical to the success of every organization. Departmental, interdepartmental, cross-functional, ad hoc, task-specific-teams do everything from planning the office party to setting the annual budget to establishing performance goals. But what separates the teams that really deliver from the ones that simply spin their wheels? What is the secret of high-performance teams? As he did in The Secret, Mark Miller uses a compelling business fable to reveal profound yet easily grasped truths that can dramatically transform any organization. Debbie Brewster, the heroine of The Secret, has been promoted and is now struggling with taking her new team to the next level. Her old mentor, Jeff Brown, the company's CEO, sends her out to find the secret of teams. On her journey she learns from three very different teams-the Special Forces, NASCAR, and a local restaurant. Debbie and her team discover the three elements that all successful teams have in common. But that's just the beginning. The devil is in the details, as the story of Debbie's efforts to actually implement the three elements shows. You'll learn how to change entrenched ways of thinking and acting, what you have to do to optimize each of the three elements of a successful team, how to measure your progress, and more. Creating high-performance teams does more than just give your organization a competitive advantage. It can be a performance multiplier that significantly improves results while honoring and developing people. It may be the ultimate win-win-win that your organization is seeking.… (mere)

Mark Miller takes a page from Aristotle's book and opens his story by noting that if we want to know what makes a team exceptional, we should begin by studying exceptional teams. He then proceeds to do so with a series of case studies from a variety of fields, showing how the same fundamental principles apply in each of them even if the terminology varies somewhat.

And the principles he identifies are indeed fundamental. First is selecting the right people to make up the team, who have the potential to fill the complementary roles required. Second is actualizing the potential of each individual team member through training or practice, leading to continual growth in their level of skill. The third is actually an integration of the first two, finding how each person fits into the team and practicing working together toward a common end. (Interestingly, all three of these principles have their counterparts in Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, so I guess Miller cribbed several pages from him!) Miller examines them all from multiple angles and gives several terms for each, so you can pick the ones that resonate with you and will be easiest to remember.

This might seem deceptively simple, but what Miller is actually doing here is modeling how to think inductively about anything, looking for those connections among seemingly disparate cases. He ably applies this integrative method of thought to exceptional teams, but the method itself may be of even greater value to the observant reader.

There is quite a lot of other good material in the book as he fleshes out how to follow through on putting these principles into practice. The only reason I don't give this a full five stars is that, while I think his basic approach here is excellent, his execution, though quite good, could have been improved upon in some areas. His discussion of enlightened self-interest was most welcome, for instance, but could be even better in some ways. Still, on the whole I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in the subject.
