They can be described as a “team” because they work off of one another, problem-solving and constantly giving feedback to one another, ultimately with the goal of succeeding as a team (their collective performance is what makes them succeed). If one of them falls behind in their work because of home problems, sickness, or something else, the others chip in and help out with the work, where, in terms of accountability, each person has his or her own job to accomplish but at the same time can help out and is willing to help others for a good collective performance.
