To thrive in today’s competitive world, both for-profit and nonprofit organizations must be able to solve complex problems and deliver innovative solutions to meet customer needs. Increasingly, organizations are turning to effective utilization of multiple teams to accomplish complex and dynamic goals.

You will learn how leadership can reduce individual risk to encourage staff members to participate in the teaming process, and be less afraid of making a mistake or being rejected. Edmondson will discuss the process knowledge spectrum as it relates to organizations.
