Consultant Bruce concedes that consensus takes time, but it need not necessarily take forever if you focus on what is important, which is developing and managing a team who will get the job done and done right. He believes a purposeful vision on the part of leadership, carefully chosen and honed participatory processes, and individual commitment will lead to teams built for collaboration. Throughout he gives practical and usable tips and techniques ranging from taking a mental snapshot of the current situation, setting timelines and limits, imaging, creating visible documentation in reports and wall decor, illuminating the total framework for the committed, generating total participation through media, focusing on activities and things that take effort, tapping on group agreement, eliciting detailed assignments, gaining individual accountability and enhancing group reflection.
