While a great deal has been written about coaching individuals,
there has been relatively little investigation of
coaching teams at work. Yet in discussions with senior
human resource and organizational development professionals, this
ability is consistently cited as one of the most serious weaknesses in
the capability set of managers at all levels. Even in organizations
that have made considerable steps towards becoming coaching cultures,
1 the focus of attention for that coaching is the individual.
However, few people in organizations work alone.

We decided to write this book when we discovered that a majority of the companies
we talked to had dysfunctional and low-value added processes for budgeting, fore-
casting, and financial reporting. And, as financial executives come and go, typically
little is done to streamline these processes. Even when large amounts of money are
invested in new financial software, the solutions are usually put in place based on
the old, inefficient routines.

It’s fair to say this book would be much different if no one helped me write it. In fact, I

In the past, the formal discipline of project management was applied primarily to very
large projects lasting several years and costing millions of dollars; this was as true for
information technology (IT) projects as it was for other industries. Furthermore in the
20th century, project management methods were largely based upon “command and
control” techniques. These techniques evolved from ancient military regimes and dictatorial
governments, where relatively few educated people directed large numbers of
