Good teamwork is essential for all organisations as it signifies that people are working towards a shared purpose and common goals. High performing teams will share their skills in complementary roles and in cooperation with each other. Improving how people work together will therefore increase organisational performance.

The word evolution in the context of this article is significant as teams have to be built and evolve for a specific purpose, emerging from a collection of diverse people with diverse skills, personalities, drives and motivations. It is a rare lucky occurrence if a high performing team forms via osmosis.
