Frequently Asked Questions

There are several "types" of teams, but they share characteristics that make them different from groups of individuals. We define a team as an interdependent group of people who may or may not report to the same supervisor and are collectively responsible for accomplishing shared goals. The degree of interdependence can vary, so it is more of a continuum than a dichotomy of team/group. The final call for whether a group is a team is ultimately a judgment call where someone will have to decide whether or not the groups tasks and goals are interconnected enough, but team dynamics matter more with more interdependence.
