Because of these reasons, difficulties increase in coordination and communication. When it comes to working alliances they are not well developed in a group, because groups believe that their single main reason for existing is purely administrative—it is easier to tell 10 members of a sales team, for example, their targets, changes in offers, and so on and so forth, at a single time. Basically, in group individuals meet their responsibilities independently of each other. Teams on the other hand are extremely interdependent—they rely on one another and their expertise and experience. In a team the working alliances are very strong, and goals, that are both individual and collective are met through activities that are supported mutually. In a team, diversity is more valuable than in a group. The differing points of view of each member of the team lead to lateral thinking. A vast array of criticism of the current practices more than likely will lead to new insights and new innovations. By negotiating new understanding through discussions barriers to progress will be overcome. In this way teams tend to celebrate difference and respond positively to the uniqueness of individual contributions. A group has little need for diversity of perspective or even opinion. Managers and leaders predestine roles of each member of the group, and they are not to differ from what has been decided. There is little room for contributions that are unique or that are outside of the box.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
