The author points out that by systematically creating an environment in which team catalysts can flourish, organizations can move away from the task force approach toward self-directed teams. These teams can accurately predict future issues and work to resolve them before they adversely affect the business by reaching a crisis state. Focusing on long-term investment in such a catalytic environment allows self-directed teams to mature. This maturity brings stability to the business process, permitting continuous improvement and process renewal
