Set up to find the secret behind what makes a perfect team, the specialist task force says it was surprised by the results.

    Daniel Pink's performance motivators: Autonomy, Mastery and Purpose would have told Google this!
    I have led and worked on many successful teams and agree that it is more about process than people. The vast majority of people are already smart, they just need effective collaboration!

    How about that!

    It's not that simple Pomponia. Based on my experience a team's success depends on the people with positive attitude, having mutual trust and respect and willingness to learn and grow collectively. Give me the right people and I can come up with the amazing processes. But even well structured processes won't work with the wrong people on a team.

    Omar, I would certainly agree that positive attitudes make for effective teams. That being said, in my experience running large, complex I/T projects, I have found that often (on every project that I have led, actually) that even people who don't start out with that positive attitude grow to have a positive influence when they are treated with respect, included in decision-making and given opportunities that are meaningful to them. I agree, that when dealing with people, nothing is ever "simple", but when we choose to see the best in people, they most often show us their best side.
