The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: Book Review

The Book

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni

The Review

I heard about this book a while ago but I was intrigued to actually get a copy by Darren Cotterill, the Iteration Manager on the project I’m working on at the moment.

I was particularly interested in learning whether the ideas of agile and/or lean help to solve any of these dysfunctions.

What did I learn?

In Summary

I found this book really interesting and I could definitely relate to some of the the things that were talked about.

I think lean/agile ideas do solve some of the problems but certainly not all of them and it would definitely be interesting to try out some of the exercises suggested on future teams I work on.
