The book, Leading Teams: Setting the Stage for Great Performances, summarizes Hackman's findings from two decades of research, teaching, and consultation involving work teams in organizations. The book identifies five conditions that, when in place, increase the likelihood of team effectiveness. The chapters of the book lay out in detail what leaders can do to create those conditions and to help members take full advantage of them.
