Exploring team development

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Introduction In this part of the coursework I am going to be describing types of teams and their associated benefits. The organisation I am going to be using to do this part of the coursework is Tesco. Tesco is one of the largest retail organisation in U.K today it has many stores spread out all over the U.K. It will have many different teams working together in those stores to make sure Tesco is successful. I am going to be talking about some of those teams and how Tesco benefit from having those teams. I am going to choose three different teams and talk about if they are formal, informal, permanent or temporary. The first team I am going to be talking about is Marketing team that is in Tesco. The marketing team plays a big part in making Tesco successful. The marketing team can be either: formal, informal, permanent or temporary. I am going to explain what these words mean: Formal: A formal team is a group of people put together to work together for a particular job. ...read more.

Tesco also have to make sure have good communication with customers, so customers are happy and if they have any problems Tesco can sort them out straight and they can ask customers what needs improving in stores and Tesco can make those changes. Also making sure customers are aware of new technology that Tesco have made available for customers to make it easier for them to shop at Tesco. Also if customers have any problems using that technology the team makes it easy for customers to use the technology. Next I am going to be talking about different teams that are in Tesco and the benefits of these to Tesco. Formal: A formal team in Tesco is: where Tesco will employ a group people who will work together on one particular job for example: A group of people put together only for the purpose of promoting products and services that Tesco offer. They have to make sure customers know about those products and services and make sure those products and services are selling. ...read more.

Conclusion

The benefit to this is that Tesco will only have to train any employees employed once when those employees start and they can stay in the company for a long period of time and this also means that they can pay them the same amount of wages/ salary each year. Temporary: A temporary team at Tesco is a team of people who Tesco will hire when they are needed on particular jobs in the marketing area. If Tesco need help in making a particular area successful then they will hire people to work in that particular team for a short period of time to make that area successful. The benefit to having this sort of team is that it will save Tesco time and money because Tesco will not have to train new employees every time a particular department needs help, instead they can hire a team from a different company to come in and help that department to get back on their feet. ?? ?? ?? ??
