ABSTRACT
Team building has become a more prevalent practice in organizations, as new technologies have emerged that enable companies to involve more people in projects. With the advent of these technologies, organizations are now able to tap into a broader body of knowledge and expertise than before. Over the past ten years, project teams have grown. It is not uncommon for teams addressing complex problems to have 100 or more members (Gratton, 2007). Organizations use a wide variety of different teams, such as cross-functional teams, project teams, problem-solving teams, self-managed teams, support teams, and management teams.
