“Ants: small wonders, but what can they teach us?” Brown Bag Presentation with Q & A

Dr. Ken Bettenhausen, Associate Professor and Director of MS Management, CU Denver Business School

And although the science to prove the significance of this concept has rested under our noses, under our feet, and even sometimes crawling onto our toes, as humans most of us are dumbfounded by it. “It” is the concept of teamwork. It has been perfected by possibly one of the smallest insects seen by the human eye—the ant—and yet it is an elusive concept to master in business.

Teamwork is one of the most powerful concepts shared between living organisms. Working together, nearly any task can be accomplished, giving the team extraordinary strength and power.
