From the Paper:

"In summing up, the main reason to form a team is to accomplish a goal that cannot easily be achieved by just one person. People need to rely on each other sometimes and understanding that it is the start to a potentially great working relationship. When we all come together with one specific shared goal, success is that much easier to obtain. Taking the case of constructing Airbus A380 into consideration as stated in Airbus (2010), its components were built in from different countries namely U.K, Spain, and Germany and finally assembled in France."
