Teams are a small group of people (typically fewer than ten) whose work needs to be highly coordinated to achieve specific outputs. Teamwork refers to values like sharing, cooperating and helping one another.
· Clear common purpose that is important to the organization.

· Clear accountability for work deliverables, and the authority required to accomplish the work tasks.

· Employee appraisal, reward and incentive system that supports performance and doing their best work on an ongoing basis.

· The leadership, technical and behavioral skills required to accomplish the purpose.

· The employees of a company (as a whole or department or even that sit next to each other) are not a team unless their work needs to be coordinated to achieve the same, specific outputs.

Groups may require teamwork even when they do not need to work as a team.

How do you separate teams from teamwork? Do you have an example of good or bad results from everyone not understanding or understanding what those words meant?
