Abstract

Self‐directed work teams are playing an increasingly important role in companies around the world. In many respects they represent a fundamentally different way of conducting business at every level in the organization. Management development departments have the potential to take a leading role in introducing and fostering attitudes and skills necessary to be successful in this effort. They can do this by reframing their use of existing experiential activities. In the process, they can more fully harvest the participant′s time at the programme and create a teamwork signature for the management development curriculum.
