Quick Overview

This is the third volume in the series of workshop proceedings for the then Sport and Exercise Psychology Section.

The subject of How Teams Work is particularly topical because working in teams is now often recommended as a means of improving effectiveness in

all kinds of organisation, for example the Post Office, where we are told that strikes in Britain have occurred largely because of the attempted introduction

of teamwork while in the USA similar long-standing attempts have been recognised as unsuccessful and are being given up.

Although this volume deals mainly with teamwork as applied to sport and exercise, where there is a strong tradition of structure and function, its relevance

is much broader and illustrates what teams can and cannot achieve. Theoretical models of team behaviour are discussed and exploited, and ways and means of creating successful teams are described with real life samples.

The workshop was particularly notable for excellent and lively discussion in which members from BASES played a prominent role.
