Meredith Belbin's unique and widely-read work on teams has become part of everyday language for organizations around the world. For every manager, getting the most from their team is paramount in achieving superior results. Belbin's vital area of management research supersedes the usual preoccupations with qualifications and experience, considering instead the Team Role behaviours which shape everyday interactions in teams.

Management Teams: Why they succeed or fail is an account of the experimental study of management teams at Henley Management College from which Belbin's unique Team Role theory developed. Now in its third edition the original theory has been fully updated and rewritten in parts by the author, with chapter summaries and updated illustrations. This is the original book by Meredith Belbin, offering the only authoritative explanation of how Belbin's world-famous Team Role language came into being.

'Overall, the combination of Belbin's easy prose style and the use of chapter summaries means that this is a very accessible work.
