3. Features of self-managed teams
Self-directed teams are very popular in the business world. They are groups of employees
which are semi-autonomous and self-organized organized. The members of the group plan,
determine as well as manage their daily duties and activities with very little or no supervision.
They are also known as self-directed teams (Ledford Jr, G. E. (1994). The teams have specific
features that differentiate them from other types of groups and some of them are discussed
The first characteristic is that the employees in these groups rely on each other. They
share their responsibilities of performing different tasks in the organization among the team
members and also tend to share their expertise with other members in the organization. As a
result the employees in the firm feel empowered. The team members also have common goals.
The team members always consistently work so as to achieve these goals.
In addition to the above, there is joint responsibility among the members of a selfmanaged managed team. With the joint responsibility, all the members dedicate their efforts
towards ensuring that the project turns out to be successful (Hyten, C. (1998). The members
always work hard since they feel invested. They invest a lot of resources and time outside the
meetings of the team so as to carry out research on potential ideas as well as analyze different
actions which increases the success rate of the projects.
Additionally, the team members share performance standards as well as the mission.
They therefore work towards achieving a common goal. The members work in a way that
enables all the employees maximize the knowledge and skills they have so as to ensure the
project succeeds. They also trust each other in the team. They set performance expectations that

4. Periodic review problems
Majority of businesses carry out track of their inventory as well as products for purposes
of selling in future. One way of keeping track is using the periodic review system. The periodic
review system ensures that inventory is updated at the end of a certain specified period. The
inventory may be updated annually, semiannually, quarterly or even monthly (Hojati, M., & Cao,
J. (2007). This method of keeping track of inventory has its own advantages and limitations and
some of them are discussed below;
One advantage of this method of inventory review is that is less expensive. The inventory
doesn’t need to be counted every now and then therefore; no employees are required to
