I know what you are going to say, teams are expensive because then you pay more than one person. Yes, in the short run it seems expensive and it you are not an effective manager, in the long run too. Actually, a poor manager will loose everything to teams if not care full.
So the Question then becomes, how does one put a team or teams together and not loose their mind or everything. For starters, a good team is a group of people that works together, harmoniously towards a set goal and they put the goal before anything else, like personal issues, ego, Ambition, among other things. if a team can work together and achieve a goal or a number of goals on time, effectively, then that can be called a good team.
To put a good team together, one has to know where skilled people can be found or they should know how to look for them. I know that this is why Human Resource managers exist, to help companies put together efficient and effective teams.
Good teams will give you a number of benefits like faster problem solving, increased productivity, Higher morale, improved communication but, most important of all, more innovation. Remember that for any business to survive, they must be innovative.
