What is a team?
A team is a group where members are focused on a common goal.

A group is not necessarily a team. A group can have individuals with varied interests, attitude as well as thought processes. It is not necessary that the group members would have a common objective or a common goal to achieve.

A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project.

Teams differ from other type of groups in that members are focused on a joint goal or product, such as a presentation, completing in-class exercises, taking notes, discussing a topic, writing a report, or creating a new design or prototype.

Meetings function most efficiently when members come prepared and ground rules are laid out.
