Designing Creative High Power Teams and Organizations

Book description

The very best firms today are poietic organizations; that
is, they are exceptional at streamlining the processes of
ideation, creation, and production. These poietic organizations
do two things well: They design and develop high
power teams, and they create an organizational culture
and context
that supports improvisation, design, experimentation,
aesthetic awareness, and strengths development.
Great teams exhibit the same characteristics—trust,
commitment, and energy.
Inside you’ll learn how to design and develop creative
high power teams and organizations by first assessing team
member strengths using personality factors and multiple
intelligences theory. Following these assessments, how to
best represent and share this information to promote team
development is illustrated, while examining three types
of high performance teams—improvisational, design, and
research teams. The second half of this book focuses on
the major models upon which organizations are built, the
pros and cons of these choices, and strategy. Using current
research, examples and cases, the author articulates ways
to transform your organization into a high power and
poietic organization.
