The Secret of Great Teams

There are teams that have changed the world. The designers of the Mac, the creators of Google, the most popular site on the Web, Henry Ford’s team who made the automobile affordable, the agency that came up with Mastercard’s “priceless” campaign that has become a cliché…

Building companies and making business history, requires the know-how to build long-lasting, harmonic, cooperative, synchronized teams. Great teams are more than just a gathering of smart people. To build a great team requires the ability to master the “art of people” and knowing how to maneuver hundreds (if not thousands) of people at the right place and at the right time. It means knowing how each person thinks and how to best utilize their competencies rightly at all times.

To build a high-functioning team it’s difficult, but it can be learned. During the first week of the bootcamp stage, Simon Kavanagh and Jon Tangen, from Danish KaosPilot school trained Design Health Barcelona fellows on how to create successful teams. In this interview, they share with us some of the techniques and methodologies used.
