Book review: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team – Patrick M. Lencioni

(Note: I read this book in 2009, and this is a repost of a review I did then in Visual Bookshelf on my Facebook)

A definitive read for anyone working in, or leading a, team. It lays out the common problems and solutions through an entertaining story. Which will most likely bring up some of your own memories of situations and people, which (for me) makes it easier to relate to and try to imagine what the proposed changes would’ve actually done had you applied them.

The last part of the book where it goes into more facts about the dysfunctions and what to do about them was well written as well. Although I’d like that part to be a bit more extensive, I’m sure it is in all the extra workshops and games and book editions.

Conclusion: Read it, even if you’re not a manager.
