Explain in detail the differences between a group and a team. A group is defined as many people working together because of similarities. When working together, they interact to achieve a certain objective and shares information. A team is a special kind of group that individuals share a common goal and responsibility for achieving it. Teams are task oriented work groups that will work well with each other in which each member will have a feeling of self-worth: compare a formally appointed team and an informally appointed team. A formally appointed team has a team leader; they possess the power to influence others and may have more decision-making authority than others. An advantage would be the power that is delegated to a team leader, who may have more decision-making authority than others. A disadvantage would be that they lose popularity among the group because of their connected with the management.
