To improve communication, performance, and morale among NASA's technical teams, the author (a former NASA astrophysicist) developed the "4-D" teambuilding process described in this book. Relying on simple, logical processes that appeal strongly to technical teams who eschew "touchy-feely" training, the author applies simple, elegant principles from his physics background to the art of teambuilding. For example, he uses a coordinate system to analyze the characteristics of team performance into actionable elements. He also illustrates the teambuilding process with entertaining stories from his decade as NASA's Director for Astrophysics and subsequent 15 years of working closely with NASA and outside business teams.
