Why have teams become so important for organisational success? Research released by The Talent Foundation with the support the Campaign for Learning finds that organisations can unlock their creativity and effectiveness by promoting team learning.
The report pulls together information from from existing literature and new interviews to establish the basic process behind team learning, examining facts about team learning from disciplines including training, psychology, organisational behaviour, and cognitive science. Current case studies illustrate the power of team learning, showing what the ingredients are for successful teams.
The report goes on to show that specific activity with teams can enhance team learning.
