Work Book: Team Building, Company Leadership and Strategic Alliances
This chapter provides an overview of some of the elements associated with team building and leadership with entrepreneurial companies. The importance of assembling a well-balanced management team with a complimentary range of skills is highlighted. This management team should be supported by a competent management board made up of individuals who compliment the executive management team and assist in providing strategic guidance. In establishing a board of governance, care should be taken to get a good cross-section of members who can work together, and to avoid individuals who might wish to pursue narrow interests, interfere too much with the operational management, or see board membership as a ‘second job’.
