Building an Effective Team


In many successful organizations, all employees and stakeholders of these given

organizations who make up the teams that are responsible for their success always work

harmoniously. When an organization’s employees or team members that work on certain projects

leaders in organizations need to come up with or design their teams in such a way that they will be

productive and meet the company’s goals.

It has been agreed upon by professionals that the effectiveness and efficiency of an

organization are propelled by the effectiveness of the organization’s management, the team that is

working on a given task within the company, and the ability to solve problems when they arise

(Gupta). This paper is going to discuss the way that Ailcyons is a profit organization is going to

Building an Effective Team

responsible for the success of that given project. Similarly, if the project fails, the team will also

carry the responsibility for the project’s failure. Because of this, there is a need for the company’s

project management team to come up with a good design of the team that will facilitate/aid the

successful completion of the project at hand. According to the demands of an effective team, its

design must accommodate certain features such as cooperation and coordination among the team

members (Gupta, 2014). The members of an effective team need to also have good communication

among themselves and the organization’s management, comfort one another and have good

allow them to produce a good working environment that will allow them to meet their goals. This

means that they must brainstorm ideas while working on projects, come up with effective strategies

that will help them to meet individual and teams’ goals. When the team has been designed in such

a way that coordination and cooperation between the employees are allowed, the team will be

effective in its endeavors. Communication comes in hand at making sure that the team is effective.

messages and the media used for those messages (Champoux, 2011).” With good communication
