Book Review: The Five Dysfunctions of a Team

tfdoatThis is the first management book I have read that constructs a full narrative to deliver the foundation of the author’s principals. Readers follow the ups and downs of DecisionTech’s new CEO and discover each dysfunction of a team in a very organic way. Other management books I have read will include a short allegory to supplement each point the author wants to convey, which occasionally makes for a very dry / technical read. The narrative structure of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team keeps the book interesting and gives the principals far more depth.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve the team they work with, regardless of the role you play.
