From the Paper:

"Teams are defined by Jon Katzenbach in "The Wisdom of Teams" as "small groups of people with complementary skills committed to a common purpose, approach, and performance goals for which they hold themselves mutually accountable." Team building is extremely popular in business today. According to the Industry Week "1999 Census of Manufacturers," nearly 68% of small-company plants use teams to varying degrees. Teams can add to the productivity and profits of a business, but they can also be extremely stressful for the members involved if they aren't managed correctly."
