Schedules & Deadlines

At the worst, working in teams can be a frustrating waste of time. The disadvantages of teams include the following:
A team may develop
groupthink
, the willingness of individual members to set aside their personal opinions and go along with the rest of the team members, even if they are wrong.
Some team members may have a
hidden agenda
—private, counterproductive motives that affect the group’s interaction.
Still another drawback to teamwork is the
high cost
of coordinating group activities. Aligning schedules, arranging meetings, and coordinating a project can eat up a lot of time and money.

Effective Teams
Clear objective
Share a sense of purpose
Open communication
Consensus decision making
Creative thinking
Conflict resolution knowledge

Ineffective Teams
Communication Issues
Waste Time and Money
Generate Low-Quality Work
Breed Frustration
Focus on the task, not the individual

Team Evolution
Working in teams can be challenging. However, if the team takes time to evolve, establishes shared goals and standards, deals with conflict immediately and ensures tasks and responsibilities are understood the team can be successful.


Sources of Team Conflict
Scarce resources
Task responsibilities
Incompatible ideas
Poor communication
Attitudes and values
Power struggles
Conflicting goals

Standards for Effective Teams
Be flexible, prepared and willing to take on added tasks
Conduct research to ensure factual reasons
Handle conflict directly; morale
Direct constructive conflict toward issues rather than toward people – focus on the process
Be supportive of team members
Arrive on time
Communicate openly, positively, and with an open mind
Listen and focus to non-verbal cues 
Give and receive feedback

The first step to team success requires each team member to establish their personal goals and manage his or her time to ensure the goals of the team are met.


Team success also requires the team to establish a shared set of standards. Create a vision and mission that will guide the team and ensure that the goals are always top of mind.


A team must evolve. The first step, orientation. Get to know one another, identify skills and strengths.
When conflict arises, an effective team will deal with it immediately to avoid escalation. Stay focused on the task and not the individual.
Brainstorm for ideas and agree based on consensus. The first idea may not be the best idea.
Clarify and reinforce task and responsibilities. If I don’t know what my task are or what I am responsible for, I will do nothing.


Information and knowledge.
By aggregating the resources of several individuals, teams bring more information to the decision process.
Diversity of views.
Team members bring a variety of view points to the decision process, if these diverse views are guided by a shared goal.
Acceptance of solutions.
Those who participate in decision making are more likely to support the decision and encourage others to accept it.
Performance levels.
Effective teams can be better than top-performing individuals at solving complex problems.
