Nowhere is the team more important than on a yacht at sea, where the very survival of the crew can depend on their ability to work together as a team, to follow orders when appropriate, and to contribute to solutions in often unpredictable circumstances.
In Teams Unlimited, the authors demonstrate how the techniques of crew management can be applied successfully in the management of business teams. They show how the challenges of life at sea mirror the business environment, and demonstrate how the nautical analogy helps focus on the essential processes of effective team management.
