Over the past 40 years, there has been a growing trend toward the utilization of teams for accomplishing work in organizations. Project teams, self-managed work teams and top management teams, among others have become a regular element in the corporation or military. This volume is intended to provide an overview of the current state of the art research on team effectiveness.
"This comprehensive text provides a powerful and scholarly overview of our understanding of team work in organizations; it is likely to be the core resource for researchers for the foreseeable future. Moreover, by offering a sophisticated understanding of teamwork in complex settings it clearly identifies the main challenges for research and theory. The contributors encompass the leading US researchers in this field of research, guaranteeing a thorough and authoritative overview of team effectiveness."- Michael West, Aston University
"Ideas that were once mere seeds for thought have sprouted into strong intellectual frameworks for understanding teams, as this book shows. This book's coverage of what's new by way of thinking, application, and method should appeal to a wide audience and should continue to fuel the advance of team effectiveness theory and practice." -Rick Guzzo, Mercer, Inc.
"The editors have assembled an important, state-of-the-art resource on the emerging science of team effectiveness. Research is beginning to show the way towards enhanced team performance." -Scott Tannenbaum, President, The Group for Organizational Effectiveness (gOE), Inc.
"This is an exciting book on teams in organizations. The contributors bring both great expertise and diverse perspectives to this research area. The intersection between theoretical and methodological advances will make this book valuable for both researchers and doctoral students." -Paul Goodman, Carnegie Mellon University

The Series of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP)
Launched in 1983 to make scientific contributions to the field, this series has attempted to publish books on cutting edge theory, research and theory derived from practice in industrial and organizational psychology, and related organizational science disciplines.
The goal of the series is to inform and stimulate research for SIOP members (students, practitioners and researchers) and people in related disciplines including other subdisciplines of psychology, organizational behavior, human resource management, and labor and industrial relations.
