Rudi Wimmer is one of the few thinkers who builds a bridge between systems theory and the phenomenon ‘group/team’. He formulates important arguments which explain why it is important to theoretically grasp groups as independent, social systems. His oscillation between his role as group dynamics expert, team developer and organisational consultant on the one side and as scientist and professor on the other side allows him to draw conclusions which are highly relevant for both the economic context and for consultants.
His understanding about the special performance ability of teams, his clarity about the challenges which lie in all team work for the members, his plea for the necessity, also by top management, to move from the heroic model to collaborative action, have created substantial impulses in the German-speaking consultancy scene.
