Better Teamwork in China
What is it? Better Teamwork in China is a field guide sharing what we know about effective teamwork and how might we apply it to China, delivered in concise text for everyday reference. Who is it for? Team leaders and members working in China's creative industries, especially in the design and advertising sectors. How was it done? Trends, methods and challenges on teamwork are derived through academic research, industry practice, and interviews with 20 industry leaders. So what? Overriding team structure, vision, roles, responsibilities, resources and other conditions, this guide singles out psychological safety — a shared belief that the team is safe for interpersonal risk taking — as the strongest predictor of team effectiveness, and the "north star" toward better teamwork in China's creative industry.
Better Teamwork in China is a Hyper Island industry research project.
