How Important Is A Team To Business

22 replies
From solely the ideas and concepts point of view, fresher and more innovative solutions may bring about a more competitive and customer attracting product or service. Several "heads" brainstorming equals several different ideas as opposed to one individual trying to come up with several ideas.

Depending on one individual is not only time consuming but also not very cost effective. Another advantage of the team concept is that by working as a team much more work can be accomplished within a shorter space of time. Also the possibility or identifying the pro and cons of the item or service being conceptualized is much better and wider when compared to just depending on one person's perception.

Other benefits of working as a team also include the delegation of the work load to be borne by all those involved in contrast to one person trying to get everything done alone. Here the advantage of the time and cost saved is apparent.

Decision making also becomes easier to a certain extent when more experienced and skilled input is available instantly. This is a very important element when the time factor is a predominant issue. Decisions can be made more effectively and quickly because the various aspects on the impact of the service or product can be discussed and understood completely and thoroughly.

    Teamwork is very important, but you certainly have to share common goals and beliefs about how to develop the business. If the team members don't see eye-to-eye, it could go bad for the business.

    A team is extremely important. It is the key thing we stress in our CEO Space network for start ups or businesses not growing as quickly as they should be.

    • I would not agree that teamwork is always important in every business. A team can be liken to a tool such as a wrench. You need to use the right tool for the job or in this case the right wrench for the bolt.

      Having an effective team can be very advantageous in some situations, just as being an individual can offer advantages in other situations.

      More important than the team in my opinion is the leadership of that team. Just like a car with no place to go, a team with no direction is not all that useful.

      Just my thoughts,

      Ben

    A lotta big words in the OP!

    Did we use an article spinner program?

    Teamwork was built into one of my college programs...for 2 years we worked in teams on every major project. Really taught us how fragile things are: you depend on other people to get things done. And guess what...sometimes, they don't get it done.

    Time and activity management are vital. Leadership can come from within the team, or an outsider who shows up at regular intervals to assess progress and provide resources.

    An understanding of the different personality or behavioral styles of the members is also very important. Bluntly put, the things team members do and don't do, the way they behave, can really piss off other members. By knowing about these potential conflict sources in advance, you can head them off.

    Most teamwork failures comes from internal sabotage, ie. members not getting along. So understanding other people, and having a good management system are your most effective ways of achieving successful results.

    Dear Members,

    Teams and teamwork have become a central part of our work life.

    Teamwork:
    · Creates synergy - where the sum is greater than the parts;
    · Supports a more empowered way of working, removing constraints which may prevent someone doing their job properly;
    · Promotes flatter and leaner structures, with less hierarchy;
    · Encourages multi-disciplinary work where teams cut across organizational divides;
    · Fosters flexibility and responsiveness, especially the ability to respond to change;
    · Pleases customers who like working with good teams (sometimes the customer may be part of the team);
    · Promotes the sense of achievement, equity and camaraderie, essential for a motivated workplace;
    · When managed properly, teamwork is a better way to work!

    Teamwork is vital. Even in a situation where everyone goes at it alone...say, network marketing, teamwork can be extremely helpful.

    Let's say you start network marketing alone...you reach a certain point after five or ten years.

    Now, let's look at what would happen if you had started with a friend. If he/she had been in your organization...and had equal drive and ability, you would have grown twice as fast, right?

    No way!!! With friends encouraging each other and pushing each other, each accomplishes several times what they would have done alone. This can be because of the "elbow factor."--that is when your partner calls you and says, "I just signed up ___ people last week, what did you do." Or, it can be gentler encouragement, "Let's both of us decide to ____" Either way, much more gets done.

    Twins often accomplish more because of this. You often find twins who both achieve elite levels at athletics or similar endeavors because of the teamwork factor.

    I think the question would be "How to build an effective business team?" I simply cannot imagine a business running successfully without a team. Even if it is a single proprietorship, you need somebody to help you. If you don't want any help, then you and your customers consists the team.

    I think working with a team is very important. Moreover, it's more important to have a quality team. In order for a team to work without time-wasting chaos, you have to find a group of like-minded people that want to help you achieve your goals as much as you do. Having a team is great for having objective view points about what you want to do. It's important to never be afraid of working with people that are better than you at certain things. Working with a teams means putting your ego to the side and focusing on what is best for the final outcome, which usually mean working with people that are smarter than you.

    Even if you have a lot of money, I think that best way to start a business is with a team, especially if you have some closest friends who are skilled in that area and confidential.

      One of the great things about marketing on the Internet is how easy it is to build a team of helpers using outsourcing. You can get a lot more accomplished and outsourcing is easier on the bank account then hiring full time employees.

    I agree Masterz, great post. I feel mixed perspectives can lead to great success for many of the reasons mentioned throughout this thread. Also, our lives are dynamic - over days/weeks/months we will have challenging and dynamic times, and a team effort can help us stay on track and remain consistent.

    you have to build a team..even if you are a solo business owner..you will have a team..built for maximum results for your business ..

    team ..may be an acronym for together everyone achieves more ..but always remember..ther is an M and an E for ME ..

    if you want to join someone team..be an employee.. is you want to get rich..build a team..and remove people who are not doing the jobs you need them to..

    you have your goal..and your business needs to earn profits to grow..the team you build gets you closer to your goals or gets you to your goal..and the members of your team may change often..

    the bigger your team ..the larger your army..the bigger rewards you can aim for ..

    always count on the people in your team to be human
