What makes a team effective? Which qualities set successful groups apart from other groups?
To find out, Google conduted more than 200 interviews with its employees and looked at more than 250 attributes of 180 active Google teams.

Specifically, the researchers found five key group dynamics set successful teams apart from other teams at Google.
