We all like to achieve things individually but, in the organisational context, we all know that much more can be achieved from teams.
So what are the key differences a team can make?
A team brings a much greater range of skills, experience, knowledge and attributes than any one individual could ever bring alone.
Being part of a team offers support which can keep the momentum going through the more difficult and challenging times.
Few of us look at problems or challenges in exactly the same way. This diversity of ideas can really help broaden thinking and developing solutions that deliver great results.
Growth and development
Being part of a team such as a project team can provide individuals with low cost ways of having access to personal growth and development.

The truth is teams can really make a difference to personal and organisational success. What else would you add to the list?
