This paper discusses the importance of team building and specific team roles within an organization. The paper describes ways that effective team building can occur and discusses how, when selecting a team, organizations should consider the individual member's skills and abilities, experiences and history, but also the diversity of the team and the ability of team members to work effectively with one another. The paper concludes by suggesting that performance evaluation is also necessary to assess the efficacy of team measures and processes.

From the Paper:

"Much of the research examined suggests that while participative management and leadership is essential to good team functioning, it is not necessary for achieving a teams goals and ensuring team efficiency (Biech, 2001). In the current functional management structure the organisation is still dominated by hierarchical lines of authority. While a team based approach may encourage more participative management, hence empowering teams, it is not the ideal structure for facilitating maximum success in projects within the organisation."
