Team-Work  

Organization Culture

Organization culture represents the way employees view the organizational behavior and also the basis on which they shape their day-to-day conduct. As they say, culture is defined more by its absence that what is. This chapter shares the cultural elements of an execution-focused entity.


Team-Work


Working in a team-formation is an absolute necessity. In the world of business, there are no heroes. No one can be Superman. All good and successful organizations always have teams behind them carrying on the assigned tasks in a planned and scheduled manner. A team can outdo any specialist or super-effective individual who is working alone.

There is a reason why standard, critical and non-negotiable processes and tasks are performed in teams. Obviously, a team can contribute much more than an individual employee can. What is even more important is the fact that the team, as one cohesive unit, leverages on the synergies of efforts, skills and expertise of all it's individual members and produces a greater output and a better result compared to its individual members working separately. The whole is more than the sum of it's parts - this holds true for team work. Having a team look after a critical process also ensures that backup resources to take care of sudden absences of the employee responsible at a particular point of time. The resourcefulness and the ability to handle a crisis is also much higher with a team rather than a single individual. Working in a team culture has to be part of the overall management planning since this style of execution leads to higher levels of performance.
