About the Book

In The Art of Teams, Ralph van Roosmalen introduces the TOTA model with six crucial components for teams to create value—based on academic research, existing models, and his 24+ years of experience.

This book is a must-read for every professional working with or in a team, like scrum masters, agile coaches, team leads, project managers, managers, and team members who want to support their teams in becoming high-performing.

Written by Ralph Van Roosmalen

"A huge box of tools to choose from, with a helpful appendix showing what practices help with which dimensions of team health.
"The book is very practical and easy to read. I specifically enjoyed the Reflection sections at the end of each chapter"
"The Art of Teams is a gem. The real strength of the book is how well it is rooted in research without following one school of thought"
"This book is different. It’s an A to Z of teams that gives you options for creating and nourishing teams in your context."
