In almost any situation within a company or organization a team structure is highly beneficial towards the day to day departmental operations. Teams within an organization can be both large and small and organized based on function and purpose. Larger teams tend to be broken down into smaller units or working groups. Some of the benefits of a team structure include:

  1. Division of labor
  2. Diversified skill sets
  3. Increased productivity and efficiency
  4. Ability to create functional working groups dedicated to specific tasks and areas of expertise
  5. Diversity of ideas and solutions
