In the SocioTechnical Systems theory, the concept of the Self-Directed Work Team (also called Self-Managing Team) is a central element. Its underlying philosophy rests on the principles of a process-oriented organization, local and autonomous regulation of processes, teamwork, participation and learning, partnership in decision-making and minimal critical specification.

This book provides an overview of practical insights for designing and developing self-directed work teams. Relevant design principles are presented, a practical model for team development is described and the the role of the team leader is clarified.
