100 word review: The five dysfunctions of a team, by Patrick Lencioni
Poorly written, overly long, but containing useful information. This could be the summary of most business books. Leoncioni works on organisational structure and behaviour with companies, and builds fables to teach his principles. The fables are really, really difficult to read, but there is something about using storytelling that makes it stick, I suppose, but I’d personally rather read a textbook. It’s got loads of useful advice, I just wish it had a little bit more respect for people and the language in which it’s written – and spent more time on actual case studies rather than one long made-up one.
