Teamwork Video

 Tom Wujec Build a Tower

Above is a video from TED Talks where Tom Wujec talks about how you can see the impact of collaboration on teams.  He explains the types of teams that are most effective and the teams that are least effective.  The teams are assigned the task of building a tower in 18 minutes.  The results of types of teams is quite enlightening.

The key to making it work is the willingness to collaborate, test ideas, and then adjust and refine based on the outcomes.  Spending all your time planning to get it perfect is less effective then deciding to act and making changes as you go.

Hope you enjoy the video!
