Re-Read Saturday News
We continue the read/re-read of The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni (published by Jossey-Bass). As we move through the first part of the book we are being exposed to Lencioni’s model of team dysfunctions and a set of crises to illustrate the common problems that make teams into dysfunctional collections of individuals. Today we re-read the three sections titled Awareness, Ego and Goals.
Visit the Software Process and Measurement Cast blog to participate in this and previous re-reads.
The Software Process and Measurement Cast 417 will feature three columns from Steve Tendon, Jeremy Berriault and of course a new essay from the Software Process and Measurement Cast.
