Issue 78 - 05 | The Strength Is the Group: A Business Case about Ants, Chips and Your Team’s Breakthrough Results

By Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton
Published Jan. 19, 2011 12:00 p.m.
“In the mid-cretaceous period—sometime around 120 million years ago—a concept emerged that changed the world as we know it. And although the science to prove the significance of this concept has rested under our noses, under our feet, and even sometimes crawling onto our toes, as humans most of us are dumb-founded by it.

‘It’ is the concept of teamwork. It has been perfected by possibly one of the smallest insects seen by the human eye—the ant—and yet it is an elusive concept to master in business.”
