Agreeing on the specifics of work and how these fit together to integrate individual skills requires leadership and structure, either from management or from the team members themselves. It’s true that, in self-managed teams, team members absorb many of the duties typically assumed by managers. However, amanager’s job then becomes managing outside (rather than inside) the team. Leadership is especially important in multi-team systems, in which different teams coordinate their efforts to produce a desired outcome. Here, leaders need to empower teams by delegating responsibility to them, and they play the role of facilitator, making sure the teams work together rather than against one another. Teams that establish shared leadership by successfully delegating it are more effective than teams with a traditional single-leader structure.
