How work gets done by teams whose members come from different organizations is a challenge that is faced in many areas of activity from construction projects to the work of large international humanitarian initiatives such as AIDS in Africa.

For such teams the stakes are often high and the consequences visible and dramatic: delays, cost overruns, waste.

Almost always team participants begin their work with high intentions and delve rapidly in what needs to get done. What is invariably missing is taking time to ensure that the group of people in the room comes together as a real team where trust among individuals fosters open communication and active cooperation.
