This is a post on a talk from Mark Mortensen and Heidi Gardner I attended with Nuria Rojo in London a few weeks ago. Many of you will now Mark's research on teams, and Heidi's on Smart Collaboration in professional services firms.
We also went to a second session with Douglas Rushkoff, author of Team Human which calls for greater human autonomy in the digital age.
Douglas suggests being human is a team sport, which I think is a good line, but wouldn't a community festival be even better? - being human is about being, not competing.
