Good Reads: A New Kind of Team

From The Future of Talent is Clusters 

A New Kind of Team: Clusters

Clusters are a radical alternative to our traditional notion of teams. They are formed outside a company context, but are hired and paid by companies as a unit, as a permanent part of the company. They manage, govern and develop themselves; define their own working practices and tools; and share out remuneration. Technology trends and tools like the cloud, and collaboration suites, are evolving to make this more and more workable.

Clusters actively seek the variety of skills, talents, and personalities necessary to create a high performing team.
