Designing Together: The collaboration and conflict management handbook (http://www.peachpit.com/store/designing-together-the-collaboration-and-conflict-management-9780321918635) by Dan Brown

WHAT IS THE ONE THING not taught in design school, but is an essential survival skill for practicing designers? Working with other people. And yet, in every project, collaboration with other people is often the most difficult part.

The increasing complexity of design projects, the greater reliance on remote team members, and the evolution of design techniques demands professionals who can cooperate effectively. Designing Together is a book for cultivating collaborative behaviors and dealing with the inevitable difficult conversations.
