Reason Why You Need A Team And Not A Workgroup

The word team is used loosely by organizations. "We are all part of the team" a boss will tell employees. A team implies unity of purpose, collaborations, and to some people a measure of equality. Yet, most humans confuse a workgroup for a team.

Difference Between A Team and A Workgroup
In a workgroup, individual members do not necessarily collaborate with each other to complete their tasks. Each individual does his or her tasks as directed by the manager. Collaboration takes place between managers and individual employees but not necessarily between employees.
In contrast to a workgroup, A team is more than just a set of individuals who work in the same room or under the direction of a manager. A team is a number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common goal for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.

Understanding The Word Team
Someone once considers the word "Team" as an acronym. He breaks it down as:
T - Together
E - Everyone
A - Achieves
M - More
