Are all Work Groups Teams?

Not all working groups are "teams".  A team is a cohesive group of people committed to reach a common goal.

Understanding and mutually respecting each member's personality is a key component to a productive team dynamic.

The significance of effective team work is addressed in Module 2 of Lean Sensei Greenbelt certification.  The team dynamic component involves a complete Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessment.  During this exercise, Greenbelts learn about the 16 personality types and how to leverage this knowledge to foster effective teams.
