Often teams are constructed on an ad hoc basis without any consideration given to their composition or purpose. Once established and in operation the management of a team is often unplanned and not sympathetic to the team’s purpose. The construction of teams, with strategic objectives in mind, brings together the best complimentary resources of the organisation as a powerful tool for solving product and corporate problems.
