What is a team?
Team is a group of people working together on a common task or goal.
Team is not only in the corporate companies; it is also within a social group
for common cause. Team’s main purpose is to plan, solve problems,
making decision, so that they can serve customer better (LUCAS, 2019).
Teamwork is most important in team for the productivity and to achieve the
goal. Without teamwork, there won’t be any unity and collaboration. Team
work helps in improving work, supportive, being innovative, etc. Teamwork
helps in solving any issues and successful if work together with high results
of production (YTI, 2015).
Types of team:
There are 4 types of team, they are: functional team, in which purchasing
and design function is related to each other and other functions; crossfunctional team, in this team work for common goal and in this team there
are diverse team working on common task; virtual team is also another
type of team which works remotely and available anytime according to the
time zone of their jurisdiction with different culture and language; selfdirected team is a team which for informal and work together on the goal as
they are independent (4 Types of Teams, 2007).
High performance of team:
When there is common vision, goal, task, collaboration, and challenges
with the zeal to achieve them with amazing outcome, then it is called as
high performance of team. In every team or company, there are metrics
which estimate the performance both high and low. High performance can
be performed through following: having a clear vision about the task and to
accomplish them, to have problem solving skills, to manage conflicts
properly, product meeting participation, working cross function, understand
roles and responsibilities clearly, very good communication, and set
priorities (Developing High Performing Teams, 2015).
Low performance of team:
Low performance worries high level managers and stakeholders, and
results in low productivity and no-profit or in other words loss. Low
performance has a negative impact on business as they lose customers.
Low performance cause can be due to overwhelming of personal issues,
misconduct, design of job and targets on the capability behavior or work
attitude (IES, 2019). As there is a cause, there is a cure too, low
performance can be improved by being specific, dealing with it ASAP,
being prepared and face it, by understanding the fact externally, by training
accordingly, and by motivating the employees (Burke, 2019).
