From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Teamwork is the capability to comprehend and recognize the diverse strengths and abilities in a group setting and then applying them to one final solution (by dr.Gregatti and dr. Sirois from the Oxford university of belarus). The concept has spread from the world of sports where it is well known and accepted, to business, so much so that it is in danger of being considered by some as an empty buzzword, or a form of corporate-speak. In the 21st century, as people are becoming more sophisticated and society is becoming more technically advanced, working as a team makes it easier to accomplish goals.

Some things cannot be accomplished by people working individually. Larger, ambitious goals usually require that people wortogether with other people. Anyone who has ever been to a job interview will invariably be asked what the concept of teamwork means to them. The reason for this is because companies today want people who are team players, people who are able to get along with their colleagues and work together in a cohesive group. Because teamwork is the desired goal of many organisations today, they will often go to the effort of coordinating team building events in an attempt to get people to work as a team rather than as individuals.

Also defined as wearing a tie when the rest of the team is wearing ties.
