This is the management to laborers good understanding way. It always means enhanced collective understanding of the course of action to be taken after the decision is taken.

Disadvantages of Team

Individual opinions can be biased or affected with preconceived notions that can hinder the process. One of the major disadvantages is that it is more time consuming than the process of individual decision making. It takes longer to be finalized since there are many opinions to be considered and valued. In case of authoritarian or minority group decision making, the people whose opinions are not considered tend to be left out from the decision making process and hence the team spirit ceases to grow. The responsibility and accountability of the decisions are not equally shared in some cases which leads to a split in the group and hence hampers the overall efficiency of the group.

Types of teams 1. Formal Teams A Organizational group whose purpose & tasks directly to attainment of stated organizational objectives. 2. Problem solving teams A formal group of hourly & salaried employees, often volunteers, who meet to discuss ways to improve quality, productivity & work environment. 3. Special purpose team A formal group of employees from various departments or even two organizational levels that is empowered with responsibility to handle any of a number of possible special situation.
