Work team

Different than a work group

· team,to-sort

“A team consisting of three or more people who collectively work towards a common goal through coordinated efforts. Their complementing skills lead to a team performance that is better than the sum of their individual input.”

Note that a work team is not the same as a work group: work groups do not have a common goal and do not aim for synergy. Workers in a work group are individually accountable for their performance and their goal is to exchange information.
