Unit 9: Understanding Teamwork

A team is a relatively permanent work group whose members must co-ordinate their activities to achieve one or more common objectives.

The objectives might include advising others in the organisation, producing goods or services, and carrying out a project.

Because achievement of the team’s objectives requires co-ordination, team members depend on one another and must interact regularly.

A work team generates positive synergy through co-ordinated effort.

Individual efforts result in a level of performance that is greater than the sum of those individual inputs.

When a team is created it will create an environment of social interdependence and that can be a good thing or bad depending on how it is managed.

Teams have far-reaching impact in today’s workplace.

They have become an essential part of the way business is being done.

Team skills and group membership form a very important component of the attributes required for success in work place.
