King Arthur's Round Table by David Perkins

Book Description

A practical methodology for reforming the way organizations collaborate and communicate Renowned Harvard professor and author David Perkins uses the metaphor of King Arthur's roundtable to suggest that more effective collaboration is the future of intelligent organizations and businesses. He presents a plan for identifying processes of communication and proposes ways to eliminate hindrances. Covering topics such as types of feedback, quality of leadership, and the dangers of regressive language, Perkins introduces a methodology for effective group communication, ensuring that the intelligence level of the group equals the sum of its parts. David Perkins (Boston, MA) is a professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He is a founding member of Harvard's Project Zero, a research outfit focused on cognitive-symbolic capacities, which he codirected with Howard Gardner, a celebrated education specialist. He is also the author of The Eureka Effect, Outsmarting IQ, and Smart Schools. He has consulted for schools, museums, and governments in Europe, Latin America, South Africa, Israel, and the United States.
