Document Summary

Two or more people with a common relationship. A small number of people who work closely together toward a common objective, and are accountable to one another. Example: very slow at making dumplings, while your friend is fast. You each make 50 dumplings, but it takes you a lot longer while your friend goes and has a drink. You"re making dumplings with a friend for chinese new year. Your friend (b/c it"s a combination of both efficiency & effectiveness) Increased effectiveness - only when the task requires multiple skills, judgment and experience. More flexible than departments - because teams can change quickly and easily when the situation changes. More motivational - because teams have higher task identity. But: decreased efficiency - because takes more time & more resources to plan the process. The end goal is more than the aggregate of individual goals. An individual can perform the work well on his/her own.
