Introduction

Developing Teams in Business In this task I will be describing different types of teams and the benefits of teamwork for an organisation; I will be investigating two businesses the first being Waitrose and the second being Apple. What are teams? A team is a collection of people with a shared responsibility and a commitment to work together. For example, a football team, a group effort is needed for the team to win, without the group effort the team would fail, this shows where all the people involved are equal and have the same skills.it is vital to develop a team understanding in order to achieve effective teamwork. Some other examples of teams are: builders, fire fighters etc. Different types of teams need to possess different types of qualities and skills depending on their responsibilities. Apple has a formal team, it has a leader who delegates task, the leader is higher ranked therefore it is a formal team. ...read more.

4) Reduction of alienation - Creating a team could help new workers settle in to an organisation, being in a group would require new workers to interact with other members are create ties with each other. The new worker would then become more comfortable in the organisation, this could help improve productivity. 5) Implementing change - Being in a group could help implement change, because the group will have a various amount of people, implementing change would be easier because more people are being told what to change at the same time, this would mean that less time is spent briefing others about the change as they would all have been briefed at once. This is beneficial to a team as it means they can use the time saved elsewhere. ?? ?? ?? ?? Hasan Khan - Developing Teams in Business 1 ...read more.
