Jeffrey,
I'm glad to see someone reading and drawing attention to my Lens on Team Collaboration. I'm honored that it spurred you to write and dialogue on the topic of Teams.

While I realize that you weren't being contentious with me, I wanted to point you to a few other things that I'd written that are more in line with your article.

In spite of my strong belief that Teams are the driving force in any organization, I must admit that a Team is only as strong as its weakest link.

I wrote about the individual contributors as "self producers" in a posting on my personal blog about Paul Graham's essay about "What Business Can Learn from Open Source."

Additionally, I'd also point you to a post about Ken Thompson's article that states three points that are key to a team's productivity success:

"Personal Motivations are crystal clear for every team member. All work is voluntary and the leader cannot give orders. Each project passionately nurtures its network of supporters."

Keep writing, I love your blog.
