Corporate Team Training : A More Rational Organizational Development Method
Craig L. Thrasher
Volume : 27-4 (1972)
Problems of the increasing rates of failure of modem business organizations are examined, with particular emphasis given to firms in the «million dollar plus» category. On the hypothesis that this problem has evolved from an increasing inability of organizational members to make immediate and accurate decisions, various individual and organizational development methods are examined. A common failing of all of these methods is their inability to train individuals in team behavior— the essence of the business environment. A method of «Team Training» is described that should serve to close the gap between development of competent individuals and the growth of the responsive and successful business organization.
